Chilocco School to Host Powwow

The Oklahoman
May 28, 1990

Sounds of an Indian powwow will be heard for the first time in a decade on the grounds of the old Chilocco Indian School north of Newkirk in Kay County.

The first annual Narconon-Chilocco Powwow is scheduled for this weekend to celebrate the reopening of the Chilocco campus, organizers say.

The event is being sponsored by Narconon Chilocco New Life Center, a substance abuse center that plans to open on part of the old school campus in late June. The center will use techniques developed by the late L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology.

Admission is free. Many Indian arts and crafts will be on display and for sale.

Special guests at the powwow will be the Tonkawa Scalp Dancers, who will perform Saturday from 1 to 2 p.m.
