BEL AIR, MARYLAND - This Saturday's Morning Star Powwow marks the twelfth year the Baltimore American Indian community has come together to host a powwow to benefit the St Labre Indian Schools in Ashland, Montana.
St Labre serves Cheyenne and Crow families through three schools that offer the range of opportunities that a good education makes possible. In addition to the benefit aspect of the powwow, it also supports and builds the American Indian community of the central Atlantic area. The final purpose is to provide a cultural and educational event for our students and the wider community.
The Morning Star Powwow will be held at the John Carroll School, located at 703 Churchville Road in Bel Air, to sing, dance, laugh, celebrate traditions, and pray together.
Attendance has increased each year so that the powwow now features 5 drum groups, over 100 dancers, over 20 traders, and over 2,000 spectators. A good spirit pervades as people enjoy old friends and make new ones.
