Please note that there is a change this year for dancer and singer registration. On Friday, you will need to pay the $5 admission fee to enter the grounds. When you register at the powwow, you will receive the customary wristband that will allow you entry for the rest of the weekend and a coupon good for the traditional dancer meal. In addition, you will receive a $5 food coupon to reimburse you for the admission cost. The coupon can be used at any of the Indian Summer food vendors. Dancers MUST be in regalia when registering.
