HELENA -- In early May, the Last Chance Community Pow Wow announced that it would be canceling this year’s event in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and focusing on the 2021 pow wow.
Tina Marcum, chair for the Pow Wow said, besides the obvious safety reasons for canceling the event, their main focus is on educating the community, which they aren’t able to do as a result of capacity restrictions.
Though the pow wow is canceled, Marcum said they’re still trying to keep the community up to date during these times.
"We have a Facebook page, so they can message us. We have our phone still on, they can call us, and when we're out and about in public, if people who do know us they come up and talk to us, and we still try to stay connected with in that way," said Marcum
Marcum noted the Last Chance Community Pow Wow hopes to begin fundraising for the 2021 Pow Wow in the Spring of 2021.
