The theme of Prairie Awakening-Prairie Awoke 2019 is youth. At this year’s Celebration, the Meskwaki Nation will be featured. A Youth Drum, along with a contingency of youth dancers, will share the story of the Meskwaki Nation through their drumming, song, and dance. DCCB will unveil its “Buffalo Wallows” project, led by local youth. Dallas Chief Eagle will again share his messages through a Hoop Dance presentation and a bonfire audience participation Hoop Dance. A rehabilitated raptor and tagged migrating monarchs will be released from the Celebration’s arena. Several local traditional drums will bring the drum and songs to the arena with dancers in regalia and more opportunities for you to join in the celebration with your dance. As traditions direct, we will sit together, in the tallgrass prairie arena at Kuehn. Bring your lawn chair for seating. The event is free. Concessions will be available onsite. DCCB would like to recognize and thank the Bock Family Foundation for their support of the 2019 Prairie Awakening-Prairie Awoke Celebration.
