The public is cordially invited to attend and participate as we celebrate the annual American Indian Pow Wow sponsored by The Order for the Preservation of Indian Culture (T.O.P.I.C.)
The purpose of the Pow Wow is to bring people together to express the sense of community, the sense of oneness with each other and with the universe, this sense of sharing. It is something that the non-Indian can learn — that we are all dependent on one another — all living creatures have an obligation to one another.
The Pow Wow is also known as a dance, a doing or a traditional Indian gathering and has great meaning to the American Indians. These dances or gatherings have taken place for hundreds of years. Historically these gathering were held in the spring or summer. At this time people had a chance to get together with old friends, meeting new ones, exchanging ideas, trading, dancing, drumming and feasting. T.O.P.I.C. members are an active group, busy promoting the fellowship found in common love of the American Indian culture. T.O.P.I.C. is a chartered non-profit, inter-tribal organization striving to bring about a better understand of American Indian life. Picture taking is welcome with only a few restrictions.
Refreshments are sold, and hand-crafted Indian jewelry, pottery, beadwork, weavings and many other crafts are available for purchase.
