PowWow in the Pines

The 10th annual Jena Band of Choctaw Indians “PowWow in the Pines” was held last Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12-13, with hundreds of visitors from many states attending the colorful event. A gourd dance and grand entry were held Friday evening, and repeated twice on Saturday. JBCI Chief Cheryl Smith expressed her thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this event such a success, especially the visitors from Tribes in other parts of the state and out-of-state. One scene from the activities is shown above and other photos from the gourd dance and grand entry can be found inside this edition of your parish newspaper.
