Over 3,500 people attended and more than 250 people competed, said Rita Wright-Burkhalter, the clinic's community development director. "The powwow originally began as a way for the clinic to honor our patients and all American Indians in central Oklahoma," Wright-Burkhalter told The Oklahoman. The powwow took place at the state fairgrounds. Get the Story:
