The Leh Nah Weh Native American Organization’s 2013 powwow was held at Mitchell Park in Raisin Township on Saturday and Sunday, June 29-30, in memory of board member Art Brant, Mohawk warrior for Native rights.

Several tents set up for the event on Friday, June 28, met with high winds and were blown over. Cheyenne, a vendor from Hillsdale attending the powwow, said that tornado type winds blew through, picked up his tent, at approximately 6:30 p.m., and threw it several hundred yards away. By Saturday morning the tents were replaced or repaired and open for business.

Despite threatening weather throughout the weekend, spectators were treated to a grand entrance on Saturday, where Abel “Cool Wind Bear” Cooper, of the Leh Nah Weh Native American Organization, and others presented flags and staffs representing those participating in the event.
