Ready to Powwow?

Native American dancers from all over the region will pit their skills against one another April 2-3, as the Big Spring Powwow gets ready to once again take over the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

And while the dancers are certainly sharpening their skills and moves for the annual event, Big Spring Powwow Committee Treasurer Connie Lesser said the local group has plenty of work to do before the festivities get under way.

“Donations and sponsors are what keep the powwow going each year,” said Lesser. “It costs anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000 to put it on each year, so donations are always a huge help, even if it's just a few dollars here and there. Our local businesses, who help sponsor the event, are also a huge part of what we do. We'll be taking business sponsors right up until about a week before the powwow, so it's not too late to show your support for this great event.”
