Oneida Nation wraps up celebration with powwow
The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin held its 35th annual powwow over the weekend, drawing more than 8,000 spectators to the reservation.

More than 600 dancers and drum groups competed for prize money in the three-day event. "It's like a homecoming," tribal member Eva Danforth told The Appleton Post-Crescent.

The powwow was part of the tribe's Oneida Days celebration, which began June 29 and included a golf tournament, a culture festival and other events.
