PRAIRIE AWAKENING: Cultural Celebration Of Fall


Celebrate the annual Prairie Awakening with the Dallas County Conservation.

Every year at the Kuehn Conservation arena, all are welcome to join in as one of the First Nations leads the prairie awakening celebration.

This year’s First Nation to be featured is the Meskwaki.

The Meskwaki will share traditional dances, songs and their cultural story.  Tribal historian Jonathan Buffalo will speak about the Meskwaki story both past and present.

The Grand Entry and welcome begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday.  The event will continue through 8 p.m.

The prairie awakening celebration is free and the public is welcome to attend.

Attendees should bring their own seating.  In respect for the culture, pets should not be taken to the celebration.

More information about the program is available on the Dallas County website.
