Andersontown Pow Wow and Art Market

During the ten years that Andersontown Pow Wow and Art Market has been founded, a group of Delaware have helped. Annette Ketchum and Mike Pace are descendants of Chief Anderson for whom the town and festival are named.

Dee Ketchum has MC’ed the Powwow for three years and Mike has served as area director. Both, along with Annette Ketchum and Ella Pace, are presenters for the school programs during the week before the powwow and during the powwow they speak to small audiences at the event on various Delaware topics. After the powwow dancing, they do some traditional and lead dances.
