Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On the Annual Meskwaki Powwow
Thursday, August 6, 2020
This year, many important annual community events have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each year, the Meskwaki Powwow serves as an opportunity to bring the Meskwaki Tribe together with fellow Iowans to share, learn and honor the Meskwakis’ unique contributions to our state.
This gathering is important to preserving the Meskwakis’ heritage and sharing it with the next generation.
In light of the cancellation, the Meskwaki are posting number of educational resources on their Facebook page – at Meskwaki Nation – to honor Meskwaki Annual Powwow week.
I encourage Iowans to visit and learn.
