Gathering of the tribes called a huge success
Thursday, May 28, 2015 — The Susanville Indian Rancheria’s sixth annual Pow Wow drew Native Americans from all across the West Coast and delighted hundreds of locals with drumming, songs and competitive dancers wearing colorful regalia.
“This year’s event hit its total of more than 300 dancers with people coming from Washington, Montana, Arizona, Canada, Nevada, Oregon and Idaho,” said Ameila Luna, the Pow Wow’s coordinator. “Our biggest draw was Saturday night with the Hoop Dancer Nanabah Kadehehii from Tuba City, Arizona and the Men’s Fancy Dance with two encores for more. The crowd enjoyed, and wanted more.”
