The DEBWE headquarters on the 500 block of Washington Avenue is a busy place these days, as volunteers work to create regalia of fur, leather, cloth, beadwork, feathers and quills for a Nov. 30 powwow at the Detroit Lakes Armory.


The colorful beads, cloth, ribbons and other material — as well as funding to help make the community gathering, feast and powwow a success — are available thanks to a $25,000 grant from the Lake Region Arts Council.
