Powwow coming to Montrose

Posted: Thursday, August 5, 2010 12:00 am

MONTROSE - A new Indian Nations Powwow will be held in Montrose next month for all Native American nations and the public, also serving as a substitute for the Delta powwow, canceled this year for lack of funds.

“What we are hoping to do here is bridge a cultural awareness,” said C.J. Brafford, Ute Indian Museum director. “We want it to be a good time for all. It is open to the public, and there will be times where they can come out and enjoy themselves in song and drumming and get a feel of the culture - be part of it.”

The event Sept. 24-26 at Friendship Hall on the Montrose County Fairgrounds will be the largest powwow on the Western Slope this year, said Shirley Bradbury, event coordinator through THE Corner.
