Sheridan and Crow Nation come together for Powwow


Following the Wyo Rodeo Parade on Friday, many people strolled down to Grinnell Plaza for rodeo week's newest event, the First People's Powwow.

Organizers say Crow Indian Reservation representatives have marched in the parade before and held smaller powwow events during rodeo week, but this marks the first time the Sheridan community was heavily involved.

Organizers say events like the powwow are a good way to bring different cultures together.

"It opens up the line of communications between people from who are Indian and non-Indian.  We need to start taking these fences down and crossing these lines," said organizer Butch Jellis.

Jellis says about 150 drummers, singers, and dancers participated in the powwow.
