The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska is hosting its annual powwow near Niobrara to celebrate culture, heritage and traditions.
The powwow will run from Friday through Sunday at the Ponca Community Grounds, about five miles southwest of Niobrara. It will include dancers, drum groups and vendors.
Admission to all events is free, and the powwow is open to the public. It's a noncontest powwow, meant to serve as an annual gathering and celebration of family and friends.
The tribe's diabetes program will host a "Color Me Healthy" run at 5 p.m. on Friday. Participants will run two miles while being sprayed with colors.
The Ponca Tribe has a 15-county service area that includes parts of Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa.
