Metropolitan Community College celebrates Nebraska’s vibrant Native American history through dance, music, traditional crafts, colorful regalia and foods at the 20th Annual Fort Omaha Intertribal Powwow Sept. 24, 1–7:30 p.m., at MCC’s historic Fort Omaha Campus, 30th and Fort streets.

Several hundred native artists will honor the Ponca, Omaha, Santee Sioux and Winnebago tribes at this family-friendly and educational event.

Demonstrations, games and study circles are held throughout the day. For non-natives, the Powwow is a wonderful way to bring Nebraska’s history to life. The tribes invite visitors to experience a Native American gathering firsthand and gain an understanding of native cultures and traditions.

This year, the Powwow and MCC will host a very special performer, Kevin Locke. Locke is known throughout the world as a visionary Hoop Dancer, preeminent player of the indigenous North Plains flute, traditional storyteller, cultural ambassador, recording artist and educator. His performance is at 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The Powwow is free and open to the public.
