The Mihsihkinaahkwa pow wow is a traditional pow wow. The Miami people host this event annually on the weekend following the first full week in August.
Every pow wow is a special event and this one is no exception. The Mihsihkinaahkwa Pow wow is unique because it creates a special occasion for the Native Americans to come together, here in Whitley County, to honor, strengthen and share traditions — with one another, and with the general public. This location in Whitley County is an appropriate setting for this event, for here in Miami territory was the birthplace of Mihsihkinaahkwa, or Little Turtle, the great Miami Chief.
The Miami will host the twenty-first annual Mihsihkinaahkwa Pow wow Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 11-13, 2017, at Morsches’ Park, Columbia City, Indiana. Gates will open on Saturday at 10 a.m. until 9 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 PM. For more details check out the website http://www.miamipowwow.org/index.html
