The Powwow is a celebration of Native American culture and Mountain Men lifestyle – the two peoples who make up the “Two Nations”.
The Powwow features authentic drumming, Native dancing, storytelling and “teaching tours” through the traditional Tipi village and Mountain Men encampment/display. There will also be a “Black Powder Shoot” running both days at Auburn Sportsman’s Club. Participation cost is $10 with a $2 re-entry fee on Sunday. Vendors will offer a variety of Native American Arts & Crafts from jewelry to leather goods. Both contemporary and traditional Native American food is available all weekend.
This year, on Sunday afternoon, there will be an opportunity to have your photo taken on horseback. Horses provided by Stowe Farm http://www.stowefarm.com/ will be painted in the Native American tradition using tribal symbols. The photos will be available for digital download from the Auburn Sportsman’s Club website. http://www.auburnsportsmansclub.com/
There will be a $10 donation charged for each photo to benefit the Powwow.
Auburn Sportsman’s Club is located at 50 Elm Street, Auburn, MA 01501. Admission is free. Parking is $5.00 a car and is handicap-accessible.
