There will be dance and drum competitions with cash prizes. Tiny Tots dancers, up to five years of age, will be given an opportunity to dance for small prizes during each of the three powwow sessions.

There is a bison rifle hunt raffle with proceeds going to help fund the powwow. The bison is donated by the Northern Cheyenne Tribe and the winning bison rifle hunt will take place on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Two hundred tickets are available for purchase, until they are sold out on Saturday, April 15. The winner of the raffle will be announced between Saturday evening, and the winner must be present to win.
