Overview

Self-reported by organization

A great spiritual impact as the races relate to each other in the universal language of music, dance, story, drumming, and food--forming better understanding through binding friendships amongst the four races--Red, Yellow, Black & White.  In 2012, this unique, one of a kind event, drew visitors from 12 states, Canada and 33 of Iowa's 99 Counties during the Friday evening and Sunday performances--torrential rains kept attendance on Saturday to a minimum.
