-Pow Wow Committee
...to the Frank Bush Memorial Walk in the Spirit Pow Wow! The Walk in the Spirit Pow Wow is a traditional pow wow honoring the memory of our much respected spiritual leader, Frank Bush - as well as all the elders who continue to share teachings and culture with our people.
The Walk in the Spirit Pow Wow is an opportunity for native peoples to gather in a traditional social setting. It is a teaching pow wow. We conduct our pow wow in the most correct way we know for being rooted in the Three Fires territory. The sacred fire burns for four days with sunrise pipe ceremonies and talking circles. There is dancing, drumming, singing, and traders trade hadmade crafts and supplies. New friends are made and old friends catch up. Our pow wow grounds are the Anishnabe homecoming grounds, now known as Historic Charlton Park.
The Walk in the Spirit Pow Wow is also an opprotunity to show the non-native community that we are a respectful and honorable people. We are happy to share our beautiful culture with the public and hope that this positive experience will dispel stereotypes and breed tolerance in both culture and thought.
Most importantly, our Committee hopes that everyone has a great experience and can journey home with a good feeling in their hearts.
