CARSON CITY — The Stewart Father’s Day Powwow Committee is holding the 2012 Stewart Father’s Day Powwow at the Stewart Facility in Carson City today through Sunday.
The Stewart Father’s Day Powwow is hosted in partnership with the Nevada Indian Commission and the Stewart Alumni. This annual powwow draws a number of quality Native American arts and crafts vendors, and is a time for alumni, former employees and their families and friends to gather at the former campus. Additionally, this event is part of an effort to establish the Stewart Indian Cultural Center to preserve the history and memorabilia of the former Indian boarding school.
There will be competition dancing, Native American arts and crafts, Indian tacos, drum groups, princess contest, raffle and a Special Alumni Recognition Ceremony. It is the committee’s hope that this event will give the community a sample of Native American heritage, history and pride.
Grand entry times are 7 p.m. today, 1 and 7 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday. All are invited and welcome to attend this free family event. For more information, visit www.stewartindianschool.com.
This program has been made possible, in part, through a grant from the Nevada Commission on Tourism. For information, call Sherry Rupert at 775-687-8333 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
