It's officially the 142nd annual White Earth Powwow, but it might just as well be dubbed the White Earth Band of Ojibwe's annual homecoming.


Powwow coordinator Dennis Hisgun said about 2,000 to 2,500 people are expected for the three-day event Friday through Sunday in White Earth, a Becker County community about 70 miles northeast of Moorhead.

"This is kind of a coming home for the White Earth people," he said. "They're all over the country."
