A Powwow in downtown Wichita featured the rich heritage of the Indian culture.

On Saturday afternoon, several tribes gathered at The Mid-American All-Indian Center for the Inter-Tribal Warrior Society Annual Powwow. The event celebrates their individual customs and shared heritage through dance and music.

Authentic jewelry and other items were sold that represented each of the tribes and traditions. For vendors, the opportunity to come together is a lesson in history for people who may not know about them.

Vendor Robie White says it is a great opportunity to show off their dances and identity as tribes.
