30th annual Trail of Tears Pow Wow coming up Sep. 8-9

The 30th annual Trail of Tears Native American Pow Wow is coming up soon at the park on East Ninth Street in Hopkinsville.

Organizer Peg Hays says it’s September 8th and 9th, it opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday and admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children over 6 and free for children 6 and under.

She says it’s a time to remember the 1838-39 forced removal of the Native American people and a time to learn more about that culture.

Hays reminds that people not only come to the Pow Wow from across the region, they also visit the park throughout the year.

Awards presentations for dance and costume and retiring of the colors will be Sunday, September 9th at 6 p.m.
