Cherry Creek Wacipi Results

The Canpa Wakpa Annual Wacipi took place in Cherry Creek from August 23-25, and included various dance contests, a parade, bouncy inflatables, softball and horseshoe tournaments. Each morning, flag raising was conducted by the akicita of American Legion Post 308, with 10 flags flown on Sunday.

The event this year had many dancers, with some dancers coming from as far away as Montana. The Women’s Traditional Special in memory of Mary Good Elk Woman had 15 participants, with  two top winners – Elaine Widow and Jordanna Thunder Hawk.

The men’s traditional category delighted the audience as they danced to sneak up, crow hop, and traditional songs.

Dinner was served before every evening grand entry and lunch was provided by John Kessler and family.
