The 2013 Hocking Hills Pow Wow honoring Chief Logan will be held on September 14th and 15th at the Hocking Hills Farmers' Flea Market in Rockbridge, OH 43149 on US Route 33 and State Route 374.  For additional information please call Jerry or Rita Patterson at 740.385.0607 or Greg Cook at 740.385.4660.

The entry fee is $5, with kids under 12 free. The Hocking Hills Pow Wow continues to be a non-profit venture, and any money made will be donated to charity.  

The 2010 Grand Entry can be seen and heard on You Tube.  If you'd like to share the chance to see real Indians with your children, grandchildren, or even great grandchildren, you should mark your September calendars and attend one of the best Indian Pow Wow's in Ohio.   Better yet, why not volunteer to help out during the Pow Wow this year. Volunteers are needed for all postions.

Below are random images from the 2010 Pow Wow showing dancers and vendors, giving you some idea of what can be purchased at a Pow Wow.

People often ask why attend a Pow Wow. Typically, a Pow-Wow preserves a lasting sense of family, pride and tradition by often displaying family regalia. It also provides a way to renew friendships and make new friends.  It's a time to renew thoughts of the old ways and to preserve a rich heritage.

During a Pow Wow, veterans are always honored. This respect for veterans is an integral part of Native American culture, when the welfare of the village depended on the quantity and quality of the fighting men. To be a warrior was a man's purpose in life. Warriors were honored because they were willing to give their lives so people could live. So today's veterans are accorded the same honor and respect.

While attending a Pow Wow you can often buy hand made items (not made in China) from the vendors.  At the 2009 Pow Wow a gentleman named Glenn A. Karshner was selling his book called Tschenque that he wrote about early frontier life based on historical fiction. It can also be purchased from the publisher web site.

When attending a Pow Wow you will often see drums that provide the pace for the dancers in the dance circle.

The date for the 2013 Pow Wow is on September 14th and 15th. We hope to see you at the Hocking Hills Farmers Flea Market in Rockbridge, OH at the Pow Wow.  Again, for additional information please call Jerry or Rita Patterson at 740.385.0607or even Greg Cook 740.385.4660.

If you plan to attend, don't forget your lawn chair!
