Great Mohican Pow-Wow coming to Loudonville
by Ohio's Amish Country
The distant beat of drums is the sound of the 28th annual Great Mohican Pow-Wow, coming to Loudonville and the Mohican Reservation. This authentic and enriching event takes place two times a year. This year, join in the celebration of all things Native American on Sept. 14-16. A heritage-rich event, an opportunity for fellowship, and a revisit to the lifestyle draws tribes from across the country, ready to share their expertise, ancestry, and traditions with all.
The traditional Grand Entry opens the weekend with flags carried into the arena, followed by tribal chiefs, princesses, elders, and organizers. Following close behind and officially kicking off the Pow-Wow are the men and then women dancers. After prayers are offered up, the round dances and intertribal dancing begins. This year’s featured dancers are the Tlacopaw Aztec Dancers native to Mexico. The dancing, original music, demonstrations, and celebrations continue for three days.
