"Celebration of The Future Gathering"

Waapaahsiki Siipiiwi Mound Historical Park

9098 West County Road 825 North

Fairbanks Township, Sullivan County, Indiana

11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

With ancient stories, songs, and dancing to honor our Ancestors,

the indigenous people who shared the wabash Valley in times past~

Bring your chairs and enjoy an afternoon in the park.

2014 Recipient of Wabash Valley Community Foundation Grant

The Miami Indians of Indiana call the Wabash River, Waapaahsiki Siipiiwi.

According to historical records and archaeological research,

this cultural Mound site in Sullivan County appears to date back to

the Late Woodland Era, A.D. 500 to 1650, pre-European contact.

The Mound builders in times past along the river used sacred sites like WSMHP for burial and ceremonial purposes prior to colonization.

In late 1700, records show the Miami, Wea, Piankashaw, Kickapoo, Delaware, and Shawnee tribes present along the river hunting and trading in what is now the Wabash Valley. Within a half mile is the river's edge called the "Narrows", a historically documented crossing during the

War of 1812 encounters. All a part of history, this mound site is preserved from the erosion of time and protected for the future.

Schedule:

Saturday, May 6th: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Drum and Dancers: Sings with The Eagles

Storytelling, Native Crafts, Handmade Powwow Traditional Clothing,

Woodcarving, Walking Sticks by Joe, Indian Jewelry, Walking trails to

FESTIVAL AND GATHERING ETIQUETTE


PLEASE DO

1. Please stand and remove your hat whenever the Honor Guard Flags is brought into or taken from the Arena, and at all times when instructed by 

the Master of Ceremonies.

2. Please feel free to join in the Intertribal Dancing. Listen carefully to the 

Master of Ceremonies. He will tell you when visitors are permitted to enter 

the Arena and join the dancing. At all other times, please respect the sacredness of the Arena by not entering it.

PLEASE DON'T

1. Please do not randomly walk, run, or play in the Dancer's Arena.

2. Please do not point with a finger, particularly the index finger, to an individual, as  it is impolite. It is best to indicate a person by pointing with 

the eyes or a head nod. 

3. Please do not touch any feather that has fallen to the ground. Guard it and notify a festival official. This is because a ceremony must be performed to recover the fallen feather. THIS CEREMONY MUST NOT BE PHOTOGRAPHED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

4. Please do not touch any of the regalia of the dancers. Regalia are any clothing, jewelry, or other ornamental articles worn by the dancers. Many 

of these are fragile and some are very old and have been handed down 

from ancestors.

5. Please do not tape songs, unless the head singer of a Drum gives 

permission. Even if permission has been granted, the Master of Ceremonies may request that specific songs not be recorded.

6. Please do not take a photograph of or videotape any individual inside or outside of the Arena without first getting permission from that person. Obtaining a person's permission is a respectful recognition of that 

person's dignity.

7. ALCOHOL AND DRUGS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT FESTIVALS OR GATHERINGS. VIOLATORS WILL BE REMOVED.
