“We are excited about this national recognition. The Powwow Committee has worked hard to make the Eastern Shoshone Indian Days fun as well as educational for our visitors.”said George Abeyta, Powwow Committee Vice-Chairman. “Eastern Shoshone Indian Days is more than a powwow. It is nearly a weeklong celebration. While singing and dancing are the highlight, there are numerous other activities, such as the traditional Indian games including the arrow throw, tepee races, the rock throw, the moccasin races, shinny games and hand/stick games. Along with the traditional games there are modern day games as well, such as the softball tournaments, basketball tournaments, horseshoe tournaments, volleyball tournaments and fun run. For each of the past three celebrations Eastern Shoshone Indian Days has seen an increase of attendance for singers, dancers and spectators. The 53rd Annual should be the best ever!”
