COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (21Alive) – Native Americans from across the Midwest came together in Columbia City to share their culture with the community.
It was all part of the 18th annual Mihsihkinaahkwa Pow Wow, or in English, the Chief Little Turtle Pow Wow. It was hosted by the local Miami Indian tribe.
This year the event is featuring Native American musicians and more than 30 Native American vendors who are selling their hand-made crafts and trades. But, even more, it's about showing the community that they're proud to be Native American.
“They kind of went through a stage where it—it was almost a bad thing to be Native, so now it's coming out of that and we get to celebrate our culture and it kind of just reminds you of your, like where you come from and kind of keeps you grounded,” said Kayla Norman, a jingle dancer and Miami Indian Native.
The event will still be in full swing Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Morsches Park.
