TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)__The sounds of drums filled the air Saturday at Lake Shawnee.

Many Topeka residents flocked to experience Native American Culture and the Traditional Gourd Dance.

The song and dance is to honor those who lost lives protecting their people. The men performed the dance with a gourd rattle in one hand and a feather in the other as they dance to the songs rhythm.

The women, who dance behind them, represent the backbone of the family.

If you missed Saturday's performance you can still see it Sunday (9/02) from noon to 1p.m. or from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

The 22nd Annual Traditional Inter-Tribal Powwow is located between Reynolds Lodge and the Lake off Tinman Circle.
