North Country Inter-Tribal Pow Wow 

An inter-tribal pow wow took place in Newport this weekend.This is the 11th year of the North Country Inter-Tribal Pow Wow.Thousands of people attended the event, which included traders, vendors, dancers and many more activities.The event is open to the public each year, and organizers say it’s a way to educate folks about the native culture.”We feel that if we share the culture that’s been passed down to our generation then maybe more people will be understanding of the native culture. A lot of people have misunderstandings about it and we’d like to share that,” said Edwin Littlefield, property owner at the North Country Inter-Tribal Pow Wow.Organizers say they hope to keep the event going strong for many years to come.
