       Feast and Pow-wow


The Minneapolis Thanksgiving Celebration Pow-wow and Feast will serve at least 900+ people at the Minneapolis American Indian Center over the Thanksgiving weekend, from November 26 - 28, 2009. Highlights of this year's celebration event include:
No admission fee or button sales, ensuring that all
   families can attend regardless of their ability to pay -
Honor stipends for dancers and drummers,
   acknowledging the value of our traditions.
*  A winter clothing give-away to help families and
   their children stay warm this winter.
*  Thanksgiving Pow-Wow T-Shirts, featuring our
    proud turkey dancer who will carry the message of our
    community pow-wow wherever he goes. 
*  Continued strong partnerships with area
    churches, who donate the Thanksgiving Day Feast.
A second visit from Harriet,
    a rehabilitated eagle from the raptor center.
