MIWRC provided tables and chairs for organizations attending the first annual traditional Powwow on Saturday, August 8 at Little Earth’s Cedar Avenue Field. There was a lot of dancing, great music, and lots of people on hand to support those who wanted to make a change in their life or wanted to help others make that change. Above all, there were a lot of good feelings and a lot of hope.
