Clan of the Hawk gathering tomorrow

in Brownington/Evansville

EVANSVILLE — The Clan of the Hawk is inviting everyone to their 29th annual gathering on Saturday.

The event will be held on the Clan’s special grounds in Brownington.

This year the gathering will run one day only and is a great family event. It is also completely free to attend.

First Light Drum Circle will be on site, so there will be dancing and drumming throughout the day.

In the morning there will be a “Talking Circle” and in the afternoon they will have a “Naming Ceremony.”

The pet parade, which has become a favorite event over the last few gatherings, will be held at 2:00 p.m.

The gathering will also host their famous ‘local’ fish fry, sponsored by the Carlson Family.

The Assistant Chiefs will be holding a Sweat Lodge in the afternoon.

Visitors can go down to the river and wade in the cool water.

The address of the Clan is 123 Evansville Road, Brownington. It is three miles East of I-91 on Route 58.
