The free event is set for Saturday, March 25 at the Coffin Sports Complex at Haskell Indian Nations University. Doors open at noon, and the Gourd Dance begins at 2 p.m. Grand Entry is at 6 p.m. 

There are divisions for all ages: anyone under the age of 7 can enter the Tiny Tots category, and people over the age of 55 are welcome to dance in the Golden Age groups. Boys ages 7-17 and men 18-54 will dance in the traditional, grass and fancy styles, and girls and women will perform their best traditional, jingle and fancy dances. 

Anyone interested in vending at the event may reach out to Brittany Hall at bhall@haskellalumni.com or 785-218-8204.
