1. Oncor will be presenting the crowd-favorite Sahawe Indian Dancers. The Sahawe Dancers are a unique performing group from Uvalde, Texas. For more than sixty years the Sahawe program has been an exciting combination of Scouting, lore, leadership development and performance. They are a major highlight of the Pow-Wow every year. Their performance is the product of hundreds of hours of planning, preparation, craftwork, and rehearsal, as the youth learn valuable life skills such as leadership, teamwork, dedication and cooperation.
2. Goodson Insurance will be presenting Comanche’s own David Woolam and his chuckwagon display. David will be in his vintage cowboy clothes, showing off his unique pioneer heritage and taking pictures with the children. Alongside David will be the Lone Star Lead and Lace Reenactors returning from last year.
3. The Sons of Confederate Veterans, located towards the north part of the park, is a voluntary association of male descendants of those who served the Confederate States of America in the Confederate Army or Navy. They are the folks that explode the canons! They also have lovely ladies in pioneer dress and stories to share.
4. Another favorite from Pow-Wows past is the Texas Camel Corps. The Texas Camel Corps was established to educate the public about the historic use of camels in America in the 19th century. At the heart of it all, though, is education. Whether it’s the perpetuation of the unique role camels played in settling Western America, utilizing the camels as a classroom for environmental/social studies or trekking over the very ground explored during the US Army Camel Experiment of the 1850’s, the driving goal of Texas Camel Corps is to share our camels in one of a kind settings that the public will enjoy and remember.
