One of the highlights of New Town’s summer will celebrate another year as the Little Shell Antelope Society holds it annual powwow August 11-14 at the Little Shell Arbor behind the Four Bears Casino.
The Little Shell powwow is a long standing tradition and the second largest powwow in North Dakota, said celebration committee member Marva Pretends Eagle. She said the powwow draws dancers from all over the United States. Cinora Fox is princess for the powwow and Kiara Hosie is the junior princess. They represent the Little Shell powwow at other powwows across the country, said Pretends Eagle.
“The powwow itself is the main attraction,” said Pretends Eagle. “The dancing, the singing, the specials are all things that bring people back every year. You see friends, family and meet new people who travel throughout Indian Country.”
