This Saturday and Sunday! The Annual Nipmuck Pow Wow!


Hi, my name is Dave Cherokee Spirit Hawk. How are you?

I’m writing in sincere reference to the upcoming Pow Wow & Ceremony Event September 10 and 11, from 12 pm sharp to 4:30 pm.

It’s the Annual Nipmuck Pow Wow at Lake Siog Park, Dodge Hill Road, Holland, MA.

I would cordially and most humbly invite all peoples to this wonderful annual event.

To include singing, dancing, drumming and events organized for children.

There will be a varied assortment of vendors who will provide wondrous varied merchandise ranging from:





musical items

mineral stones


and some diversified merchandise of many sorts…

It is a great time and a great place for just even a day out with the family or even alone time to wind-down.

There is open swimming at the Lake.

It is strongly advised to bring your own seating and cover/shade from the elements.

It is also required that guests bring lots of water and food for the day.

There are picnic areas and barbeque posts in the area and camping is available for those wanting the full experience outdoors. However, there is also a vendor who provides a grill for fast food service.

I look forward to meeting everyone and will be available for any concerns or information I can provide.

As a member of The Cherokee, Lumbee and Seminole Nations: A-li-he-li-see-da-se-dee. In English: I welcome you all.

Thank you for your time and patience. I look forward to seeing you there.

See and buy FAIR TRADE gifts from around the world!
