One of the most unique things you will ever see is coming back to Kinder, Louisiana this weekend, June 7th and 8th, 2024 at Coushatta Casino Resort. Make plans to head out to Kinder, Louisiana, and attend the annual Coushatta Powwow. It is a family-friendly event full of live action, culture, and heritage.

According to the Coushatta website,

The Coushatta Powwow is one of the largest in North America and is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

This is a family-friendly event offering a look at the fascinating culture and heritage of Native Americans.

We interviewed the folks from Coushatta yesterday and they said that there will be Native American dance teams from across the country descending on Kinder for this two-day event. It will also include over 70 vendors with handcrafted one-of-a-kind Native American items.
