Meskwaki Nation Day

On Saturday July 13th, the Meskwaki Nation celebrated the end result of a policy that was begun by our People to have a home in order to grow crops, raise children and practice our own Meskwaki religion without interference. We honor our grandfathers and grandmothers who came here, fought to stay, and endured the deprivations that now, more than a century later, seem far away. The annual celebration on July 13th provides the Tribe, its friends, and surrounding community a chance to reflect on this great shared history and an opportunity to communicate our values and pride to the children. The celebrated day began with a fun run/walk, followed by the Robert Morgan Post 701 Veterans flag raising. Shortly after, the Meskwaki Nation Day committee put on a volleyball and bags tournament, plus the Meskwaki Youth Program hosted a basketball tournament that all took place outside of the Tribal Center which ended just in time for supper. After supper, the celebration moved inside the Tribal Center in which a powwow took place. A big thank you to everyone who helped make the Meskwaki Nation Day Celebration a success.
