Zeba powwow well attended

DRUMMING–and singing are a big part of a tribal powwow and drummers for the 2nd annual ‘Nanda-Gikendan’ Powwow included Host Drum Woodland and Invited Drums, Four Thunder and Loon Travelers. The first ‘Nanda-Gikendan’ powwow was held before Covid 19 shut everything down. Finally, the Ojibwa community was able to bring this year’s event together.

Snow fell and winds blew hard last Saturday, Dec. 3, but that didn’t stop anyone from attending the second annual ‘Nanda Gikendan’ (Seek to Learn) KBOCC Powwow at Zeba Hall in Zeba. Young and old, and all ages in between, came to dance and feast, and to share stories. The purpose is always community love, but to also reinforce the practices and traditions of the Ojibwa people. “All of our head dancers (here at the powwow) are KBOCC students, employees, or board members,” said Lori Ann Sherman, who works at the Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College (KBOCC).
