Peoria powwow welcomes members of several tribes


Members of several American Indian tribes celebrated their heritage at the 12th annual Peoria Tribe Powwow east of Miami. About 1,500 people attended the three-day event from Friday to Sunday, organizers said. Event coordinator Robby Blalock said the annual event serves to keep the traditions alive for children. Participants came from Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas, and many camped out at the powwow grounds.
