Veterans Pow Wow July 13-15

Seneca Pow Wow 2012 July 21-22


Two upcoming Seneca Nation pow wows will give the public the opportunity to learn about the area’s oldest native culture and have a lot of fun in the process.

The first pow wow is sponsored by Iroquois Post American Legion 1587 and will run from July 13-15 at the Cattaraugus Community Center, 12767 Route 438 in Irving. The theme this year is “Honor All Veterans.” The event will feature color guards from all over the country and present the opportunity to honor family American flags and local veterans.

Several Native American tribes will participate in the “Seneca Pow Wow 2012,” which will be held July 21-22 at Veterans Memorial Park on Broad Street in Salamanca.  Both events will feature drum and dance competitions, traditional food and craft vendors, educational exhibits, competitive western-style and smoke dances and drum competitions.
