The He Sapa Wacipi Na Oskate

(Black Hills Powwow and Expo) 2021

September 3, 2021

Greeting Friends and Relatives,

It is with heavy hearts and our deepest regret, that The He Sapa Wacipi Board of Directors with a lot of prayerful planning, concern, and awareness for our community’s health and with recommendations from our local healthcare systems have decided to respectfully and responsibly cancel the 2021 He Sapa Wacipi (Black Hills Powwow).

 

We have received guidance from all levels of health care in our local area. The Global Pandemic and the new covid 19 variant is a huge concern for our communities.

The He Sapa Wacipi Board of Directors have not taken our decision lightly and with respect for the health and safety for ALL relatives who "Come and Dance with Us"

We look forward to making our annual celebration bigger and better with you all again next year. We want to reassure all our prepaid vendors that we will be refunding payments by the end of next week.

We appreciate your understanding and support and please stay safe during this time of a global pandemic.

Pilamaya,

He Sapa Wacipi Na Oskate
