IT’S A BUSY TIME OF YEAR IN MARQUETTE COUNTY!

 

We’re certainly in a busy stretch right now!  High school and college basketball playoffs, exhibitions and shows, and the never-ending list of community events.  It’s no wonder why they call this time of year “March Madness”!  We’ve had a whole slew of guests stopping by over the last couple of days and here’s a bit of a recap of what’s going on in Marquette County.

 

NATIVE AMERICAN STUDENTS AT NORTHERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY PRESENT THE ANNUAL POW WOW.

 

DANCERS AT THE 2010 NMU POW WOW.

Charlene Brissette, a member of the Native American Student Association at Northern Michigan University, joined Mark & Walt to discuss the 19-th Annual “Learning to Walk Together” Traditional Pow Wow.  The event is coming up this Saturday at the Vandament Arena on campus.  Charlene gave a run down of the schedule of events at the pow wow and also talked about what people can expect to see, hear and smell if they come by.

The doors open at 11-am on Saturday and there will be Grand Entries at 12 noon and 6-pm.    The pow wow is open to the public and admission is free for NMU students and $5.00 for general public.
