2017 Petal Southern Miss Powwow
April 8 - April 9Free
Mississippi has been home to numerous Indian tribes including Choctaws, Chickasaws, Natchez, Creeks, Houmas and others. Mississippi History begins with these tribes. Powwows are events where Native Americans and others gather, celebrate our cultures and share our cultures with Natives and non Natives. With Native Americans only 2% of the U.S. population, to make this event successful we need for you to come out and join us as we celebrate the Indian heritage of this area. The event is free so come powwow with us at Willie Hinton Park on April 8th and 9th.
