Omaha Metropolitan Community College will present its 19th annual Intertribal Powwow on Saturday

Omaha, NE – Metro's Coordinator of International/Intercultural Education says the Intertribal Powwow is a celebration that represents the coming together of many different tribes.

Barbara Velazquez says the annual event is an outdoor celebration of Native American culture through dance and music, traditional crafts, food, and study circles. Velazquez says the annual event draws a lot of people from surrounding states, including South Dakota, Kansas and Iowa. This year, the event will also honor the 20th anniversary of the Ponca Tribes Restoration. The tribe was dissolved in 1964 and reinstated by President George W. Bush in 1994.

The Fort Omaha Intertribal Powwow takes place on the Fort Omaha campus tomorrow starting at 1:00. Everyone is welcome to attend
