The Pow Wow at Grand Portage

The annual Grand Portage Pow Wow, sponsored by the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe), is an American Indian cultural gathering focused on dance, song and family celebration. The Pow Wow includes traditional foods, music, and craft stands along with other events in the community. Over 350 dancers participated in 2019's Grand Portage Pow Wow. Mid-day Grand Entry Saturday and Sunday are particularly inspirational and colorful as U.S. and Canadian flags are raised to honor military veterans from Grand Portage. Staff bearers lead dancers, dressed in traditional regalia, into the Pow Wow ring. Through the Pow Wow, all people have the chance to experience Native American culture in a wonderful way.
