Pow Wow season is here! Across northern Minnesota, opportunities to attend pow wows are many.  Dr. AntonTreuer stopped by the KBXE Studio recently and shared some of the history of pow wows as well as what a person might expect who has never been.   Thank goodness we live in a region rich with this cultural experience.  If you've never been, take advantage of this powerful opportunity! If you are someone who dances at, organizes, or sells your artwork at pow wows, thank you!
