NH Intertribal Otis “Black Bear” Memorial Powwow
June 3, 2017 @ 10:00 am - June 4, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The New Hampshire Intertribal Native American Council hold their Annual Otis “Black Bear” Memorial Pow-Wow on June 3 and 4. The location is Owl’s Landing Campground, 245 Rte 3 in Holderness, NH.
Gates open at 10:00 am Grand Entry at 12:00 each day.
There will also be a “Mourner’s Feast” Friday night for those who have lost a loved one in 2016.
There will be American Indian singers, dancers, drummers and flutists, representing various tribes, styles and categories. In addition, there will be American Indian vendors, as well as demonstrations, and other activities.
For non-natives, it is a chance to experience a new and different culture. For Native Americans, it is a chance to reaffirm connections to community, family and spirituality. A Powwow is many voices of many nations coming together.
The Pow wow experience can be overwhelming. Each element, from the spectacular entrance led by veterans in full regalia to the heartbeat of the drums, is full of meaning, although first-timers should not let this discourage them. A Master of Ceremonies leads the event to set the tone and explain what is happening as the Pow Wow develops.
