It's a time for festivities and dancing at the 26th annual Potawatomi Indians' pow wow this weekend.

The Pokagon band is hosting a pow wow in Dowagiac, Michigan on reservation land just off of Sink Road.

The event is open to the public, and Pokagon leaders say visitors are often in awe of the traditional dances and crafts, even if they don't understand all of the meaning behind them.

The event kicks off Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Rodgers Lake headquarters and continues on Sunday.


You can also head to a Potawatomi pow wow south of the state line at St. Patrick's County Park in St. Joseph County.

It's going on Saturday starting at 11 a.m. and it runs until 8 p.m.

There will be drum and dance performances, as well as a wigwam village, crafts and more.
