The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC)’s Pow Wow Committee hosted a round dance at the
Nii’winAkeaa Community Center in Baraga on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015. Unlike the traditional pow wow
where dancers are dressed in full regalia and various drums are featured in the dance arena, the round
dance is a more casual event according to KBIC Director of Cultural Services Gary Loonsfoot, Jr.
