The Cowlitz Indian Tribe will honor “the Spirit of All Cowlitz People” at its 14th-annual Pow Wow from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at Toledo High School. Admission is free.

Grand entries occur at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., and each attending military veteran (including non Indians) will be honored with a handmade gift. The Cowlitz Drum Group will provide presentations of their drumming and singing after each grand entry.

Dance contests for all ages will be held during the afternoon and evening sessions. There will be drumming and dancing and vendors will sell g crafts and food. Raffles will be ongoing throughout the event: They are a general raffle, a Pendleton blanket raffle and 50/50 raffles.

A free dinner will be served at 5 p.m.; donations are accepted. After dinner and before the 7 p.m. Grand Entry, a children’s program with games and a legend from Cowlitz spiritual leader Roy Wilson will entertain youth.
