POKAGON TOWNSHIP — The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians hosted its annual Ggaténmamen Gdankobthegnanêk Pow Wow Saturday and Sunday at the Pokagon Band’s Rodger Lake campus, 58620 Sink Road. 

A traditional pow wow, Ggaténmamen Gdankobthegnanêk, which translates to “we are honoring the ones we’re tied to through generations,” featured song and dance in a way that allowed Native Americans to celebrate their culture and share it with the community. Dozens of vendors were on hand selling native artwork, jewelry and food.
