Oshke-Kno-Kewéwen refers to a new eagle staff in the Potawatomi language. An eagle staff is much like a flag and recently the Pokagon Band veterans began making a new one to represent the tribal community. The new staff has more than 90 eagle feathers with each representing a veteran in a tribal family.
The Oshke-Kno-Kewewen Powwow is considered a traditional powwow that is focused on brining the community together.
