Kee-Boon-Mein-Kaa literally means "I have quit picking huckleberries."

Every Labor Day weekend, we gathered and celebrated the good harvest, our families and friends, and our Potawatomi way of life. We do this through song, dance, food and prayers. Though the pow wow began in 1985, our people have gathered to celebrate these things since the beginning of time.
