The Cherokee Ranch & Castle, in partnership with The Tipi Raisers, is holding a grant-funded Youth Summit and Powwow from Sept. 6-8 in what the foundation hopes will be an opportunity to bridge gaps between Native American and non-native culture and a place to discuss community issues.
The Tipi Raisers is a nonprofit based in South Dakota located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The organization collects donations and resources for residents of the reservation and work as cultural ambassadors.
The foundation will bring in the Colorado State University Native American Cultural Center to facilitate a panel of CSU students who will discuss questions younger students may face in the future related to cultural issues. Cherokee Ranch, 6113 N. Daniels Park Road in Sedalia, is expecting roughly 50 youths in total, about half from the Douglas County School District, to participate in the summit.
Some events are ticketed and open to the public. A dinner with presentations about Native American culture will take place at 6 p.m. Sept. 7. A Native American Powwow will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 8 at the Johnson Dairy Farm, 5490 N. U.S. Highway 85 in Sedalia. Traditional songs and dances will take place during the day alongside vendors and booths.
