GREENVILLE SCHOLARSHIP POWWOW DATE CHANGED TO MAY 2012
(10 January 2012) Greenville, TX – Lakota Ranch has announced the Annual Greenville Scholarship Native American Powwow will be held on May 11th–12th , 2012, instead of the third weekend in January.
The 18th Annual Greenville Scholarship Native American Powwow which has for years been a celebration of Native American culture, will continue as part of a larger event to celebrate the birthday of Lightning Medicine Cloud, a white, male buffalo calf born on May 12, 2011. The event will be held at the Lakota Ranch in Greenville, TX continuing the long-tradition of scholarship support for Native American students in the area.
The Powwow in Greenville features several champions in Native American dancing, competing in various styles, as well as vendors offering Native American food, arts and crafts. Participants come from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico. Over the years, the Greenville Scholarship Native American Powwow has grown into one of the largest gatherings in the State of Texas for Native American culture.
The 1st Annual Lightning Medicine Cloud Birthday and Powwow begins a new era celebrating the gift of the white buffalo calf to the people and Lakota Ranch in 2011. The two-day event will feature Native American dance competition, music, art, food and more, as an honor to Lightning Medicine Cloud and his message of unity and hope.
The calf was born May 12, 2011 during a thunderstorm, and the very rare, non-albino, white buffalo male calf is considered a blessing by Native Americans. “We are excited to continue to honor and learn from this gift of Lightning Medicine Cloud,” says Arby Little Soldier. He adds “The birthday and Powwow in May will be an exciting event celebrating the miracle of Lightning Medicine Cloud.”
