Community Pow-Wow celebrates Native American culture


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – This weekend's Three Rivers Community Pow-Wow is a celebration of Native American Culture.

The gathering at Mitchell Hall features drum groups, traditional dancing, and a ceremony including the Ho-Chunk Nation Color Guard.

Organizers said the Pow-Wow is a way for the community to experience and remember Native American culture.

"Especially for the Native Americans, we tend to be the forgotten Americans. So, we like to let our youngsters know where they came from and how they can carry on their tradition and their culture," said Eleanor St. John, a member of the Three Rivers Community Pow-Wow.

The Pow-Wow also honors local veterans.

Another grand entry ceremony takes place Sunday at noon.
