Annual Pow Wow Not Happening This Year

Posted by wlpo on April 3, 2012

The moccasins can stay in storage this year, there’s no Pow Wow happening in Utica.

Kathy Casstevens-Jasiek with Starved Rock Lodge says the annual Midwest SOARRING Foundation Pow Wow has been canceled.  It would’ve been the eight annual event.

Casstevens-Jasiek says the Native American heritage event is off because of economic conditions and years of rainy weather.  Last year’s Pow Wow was moved to Grand Bear Lodge because of flooding at Starved Rock State Park.

Organizers hope to bring the Pow Wow back next year, maybe at a different time of year instead of early spring.
