Muddy Run Powwow is Back!
This is a revival of the Muddy Run Powwow that so many people always enjoyed in the past. Approximately 30 vendors will be selling Native pottery, jewelry, artifacts, weavings, regalia accessories, books, arts, music, and Native foods during Saturday and Sunday's event. The powwow will be open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
We will have a bonfire on Saturday night, with an open circle, until 9:00 p.m. Those who would like to camp may avail themselves of the large camping area at the Muddy Run Park for a small fee, complete with showers. No camping is allowed around the dance circle, with the exception of vendors and event committee.
This is a traditional powwow - non-competitive. We are putting this event on in the same spirit that we hold the Lawilowan Festival in the Carlisle area in March. It is a gift to the American Indian people, and a way of raising much needed money for the American Diabetes Association, to fight diabetes, a disease that runs rampant in the American Indian community. Most of the money that we raise goes directly to the "Awakening the Spirit" project of the ADA, a program specifically aimed at helping American Indian people with diabetes. We were thrilled to be able to donate over $1,000 to the ADA from the Lawilowan American Indian Festival in March of this year, and we hope to be able to at least repeat that amount from the Muddy Run powwow. ADA representatives will be present at the powwow, along with representatives from the American Indian Society of DC, and other agencies involved in helping American Indian people with health, housing or financial issues. We also hope that this event will help to dispel some of the old stereotypes about Indian people, through enjoyable education about our cultures, dances and regalia.
This is a FAMILY event! Absolutely NO drugs, alcohol or firearms will be permitted. Anyone found with the above in their possession will be escorted from the premises. All dogs must be kept on a leash, and no individual campfires will be permitted.
Drums and Vendors by invitation ONLY. Vendor questions should be directed to Arvil Meisenhelter, firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-817-6421.
You may also contact us by mail at: 82 Clugston Road, Newville, PA 17241. We look forward to everyone joining us and having a great time - rain or shine!
Hope to see you there!
