The Meskwaki Nation hosted The 105th Annual Meskwaki Powwow which took place August 8th-11th, 2019 on the Meskwaki Settlement, four miles west of Tama, Iowa. The Annual Powwow consists of Tribal Ceremonial Dances, Colorful Native Regalia, Food Vendors, Arts and Crafts, and Exhibits. The powwow is a four-day event used to celebrate the end of summer. Although dance styles and content have evolved over the years, the Meskwaki still consider the event a time of reaffirmation and hope, of kinship and friendship, and of celebration. The Meskwaki’s are thankful for the opportunity to share a part of who they are as Meskwaki, with you.
