42nd annual Oneida Pow Wow takes place this weekend


ONEIDA - An annual event filled with song, dance and tradition is back.

The 42nd annual Oneida Pow Wow takes place this weekend.

The event takes place at the Norbert Hill Center.

A daily admission pass is $7.00. Kids under the age of five and adults 60 years and older get in free.

This year’s Pow-wow which runs through Sunday, is dedicated to the memory of Purcey Powless who was the Oneida’s longest serving tribal chair — 23 years. He died four years ago.

Members of at least 50 tribes from across the state are at the pow-wow.

FOX 11's Pauleen Le spent the morning checking out the event.
