Annual Warroad Traditional Pow-Wow
Kaabekanong (Warroad) hosts the Annual Warroad Traditional Pow-Wow presented by the Red Lake Nation.
The Pow-Wow features world-renowned drum groups (Eyabay of Red Lake and the P-Town Boys have participated in recent years) as well as drums from around the region. The Native drum is the heartbeat of the people. It is the first sound that a baby in the womb hears and its rhythms bring the people together in a (Bimaadiziwin) positive way.
Also featured are a variety of different dance styles for both men and women. Spectators at recent Pow-Wows have been treated to seeing the Men’s Traditional and Grass Dances, and the Women’s Traditional style, Fancy Shawl and the all-important Jingle Dress. The Jingle Dress is an Ojibwe creation and it is a healing dress. The swishing of the jingles always soothes the heart.
Food vendors provide a wide range of items to sample, from fry bread tacos to Chippewa burgers to fries with gravy or chicken wild rice soup.
Specialty vendors offer traditional clothes, blankets, hats, jewelry and trinkets, to name a few.
Attendees can expect to be treated to good singing, dancing and hospitality!
