I grew up near an Indian reservation and my memories of the prideful celebrations full of music, color and dancing, is something I cherish. It's fun for me to introduce my kids to some of the Native American culture that is a part of my upbringing and our history.

The 25th Annual Spring Contest Powwow and Indian Art Market is coming to Fort Collins the weekend of April 8th and 9th.
