**The Wacipi will be held indoors at Sunrise Park Middle School due to inclement weather.**
The Wacipi (Powwow) will honor American Indian students in the school districts of Mahtomedi, White Bear Lake, North St. Paul/Maplewood/Oakdale and surrounding communities, particularly those who will be graduating in 2023, and will provide the larger community the opportunity to participate in this traditional cultural event that is a significant part of the rich heritage of our Native American neighbors.
The event will feature traditional Native American drum groups and dancing as well as Native American vendors, artists and learning stations. There is not cost to attend and food trucks will be on site with food and beverage available for purchase.
Community members are encouraged to attend, whether they have experienced a wacipi/powwow before or not.
Want to attend, but not sure what to expect? We get it! White Bear Area Historical Society will host an information session, “What is a Powwow” on Monday, April 24th at Ramsey County Library – White Bear Lake from 6pm – 7:30pm.
