Fond du Lac Follies

Fond du Lac Follies motored to the 34th Annual Sobriety powwow held here in Sawyer on the Fond du Lac Reservation.
It is also close to the 35th Anniversary of the free beer-rock concert held in the same place on the shores of Big Lake. Whiskey River was the main act and there were cattle troughs that held the ice and beer. At I recall the event started off just fine but got a little blurry by the end of the doings.
The Powwow started off fine also. There was the usual powwow stuff: singers, drummers, and dancers, food stands, an MC and an arena director and a public address system.
There were prayers said and the Anishinaabe people gathered to have a good time. There was a tipi and a ceremonial fire. The police set up their shelter in the usual place on the east side of the dancing circle.† The usual river of people flowed in both directions outside the dance circle.
