At this year’s Pow Wow, at first light some children will be given their Native American Name. Anyone interested in having their child(ren) named, the names should be submitted to the council as soon as possible. The parent’s of those being named this year will be responsible to prepare a feast for the vendors, dancers, drummers, and new children being named at the 2013 Pow Wow.
We will have two categories: 1. Miss Tiny Tot (7yr – 11yr) 2. Miss Junior (12yr – 16yr). We will have a panel of 6 for judging. The princess candidates will submit an Essay or a Poem on the subject: What would you like to see in your tribe? Examples (drug/alcohol abuse teachings, more culture, etc.).
