While you are there, be sure to visit the Potawatomi Hotel and Casino. One of my favorite stops on the Pow Wow Trail, the Potawatomi Hotel and Casino is an incredible experience – great food and luxurious room!

It sounds like Milwaukee has some excellent events celebrating Native American culture. I’ve seen Native dancers back home, including Smoke Dancers and their dances (and outfits) are beautiful. If only there were more events like this so people could appreciate the proud heritage of America’s indigenous people. From what I’ve seen here and in other blogs, Milwaukee, Wisconsin has some fascinating cultural spots to check out. The Wisconsin Center looks and sounds like a great venue as well.
