The point is to get people thinking about myths and stereotypes concerning Native Americans.
“It isn’t a history lesson,” she said. “(We look at) some of the key concepts embedded in language, because language is one of the few things we can control.”
People often follow these sessions with questions, which Fox Tree is happy to answer.
“Some folks want to know the basics, while others want much more detailed information,” she said.
Storytelling, Native American games and plenty of Native American dishes will be available at the powwow, along with eco-friendly crafts demonstrations.
“It’s a great time for all ages,” Fox Tree said, “and the food is great.”
