Hospitality that is First Class
TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA - The Keetoowah Cherokee Powwow is growing. This year, the Keetoowah Cherokee Powwow expands into a two day event, Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. On Friday, registration will be held from 5 to 7 pm and the Grand Entry begins at 7 pm. Dances will include exhibition, Tiny Tots, All Juniors Contest, and a Golden Age Special. The Golden Age Special is for dancers 50 years old and older.
"This is our Sixth Annual Powwow. It brings together Native Americans and visitors from all walks of life. We get to share our culture with them, and visitors and dancers get to witness hospitality that is first class and people want to come back year after year because of the way they were treated," said Joe Byrd, powwow co-chair.
Saturday, October 1 registration is from noon to 3 pm, with the Grand Entry scheduled for 3 pm. Everyone is invited to come out enjoy a good time with powwow friends at the Keetoowah Cherokee Celebration, which is a beautiful wooded area on the south side of Tahlequah. Dancers and singers gather from across Indian country to enjoy the best powwow in the region.
Miss Indian Oklahoma Devon Fraizer will be among the many visiting royalty to attend this year's dance along with friends and family from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. All royalty is welcome to join the newly crowned Miss and Jr. Miss Keetoowah Cherokee.
