Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum hosts Intertribal Powwow

Takara Matthews is this year’s Head Lady Dancer.

For the first time, the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, N.H., will celebrate its annual intertribal powwow with a drum competition.

MKIM‘s 13th Annual Intertribal Powwow begins on July 14 at 10 a.m.and runs to July 15 at 4 p.m.

Two host drums will supply music for the weekend and other Native American drums are invited to enter the competition.

“Most people don’t realize that the event is about more than competitions. It’s really a way for Native American participants to socialize with one another. Non-native visitors get the chance to learn about new cultures through music, dance, arts, crafts, and food,” says the museum’s Executive Director Lynn Clark.

The museum welcomes the entire community to spend the weekend and enjoy activities for the whole family.
