    Good morning, I always attend this pow wow but was not able to do so this year. I was wondering how much the chicken dancers that placed this year took home for their prize winnings. This is one of the nations best pow wow’s and hope this is the only year I will not be able to attend. Looking forward in participating next year for sure.
