Tribal Membership Audit
Aug 5 @ 8:30 am – Aug 7 @ 4:00 pm
Tribal Membership Audit

PURPOSE
Pursuant to the Constitution and Bylaws of the Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa “Any member of the Tribe who resides away from the reservation for a period of ten years and who has not within that time signified to the Tribal Council his desire to continue his membership in the Tribe but may later be adopted into the Tribe under the same membership status as previously enjoyed, by a majority vote of the Tribal Council after residing on the reservation for one year.”

For financial purposes the Tribal Council mandated an audit of all enrolled tribal members to occur every five (5) years to verify addresses, bank information, and update tribal identification. In order to accomplish this, all enrolled tribal members are required to present themselves in person to Tribal Council representatives.
PROCEDURE
The next membership audit will be July 29, 2019 through August 9, 2019 to accommodate all out of town tribal members.

Meskwaki Annual Powwow
Aug 8 @ 1:00 pm – Aug 11 @ 11:00 pm
The Meskwaki Annual Powwow is the only one of its kind in Iowa and is held on the only Indian Settlement in Iowa.
Beginning as a celebration known as “Field Days”, the first powwows were 10 days long and held after the fall harvest.  They featured dancing, games and horse racing!
Today, the Meskwaki Annual Powwow is a four day event with a Princess Contest held the Wednesday evening before the powwow begins on Thursday.
Featuring traditional Meskwaki dancing, singing, native arts, crafts, our historic exhibition tent, and food, we invite you to share in what is truly distinctive about the Meskwaki way of life.
