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.
