The Pow Wow, or Jiigtamok, has historical, social and spiritual value to American Indian people. Some trace the word powwow back to Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Anishinaabe. Early European-Americans used the word to mean a council or meeting. Powwows, or celebrations, as they were called, were originally held in the spring to celebrate the new beginning of life. People participate in traditional dance and song, visit with family and friends, make new acquaintances and trade arts and crafts.

Entrance is from Baawating Drive off Shunk Road on the Reservation
