Coffeyville Community College held the 2nd annual Rally in the Valley youth competition and intertribal powwow on March 31, 2012 at Nellis West.  The powwow is a project hosted by the Native American Leadership (NAL) students to further their knowledge of the Native American culture and to enhance their team building skills. 

Elementary and high school age dancers participated in their age division and dance category for prize money and points in order to achieve the overall high scoring team.   The Royal Valley dancers of Royal Valley, Kansas took home the overall team prize with 15 participants.

“I felt that the powwow went very well. The number ofparticipants grew from last year which is always nice to see,” said Taylor Davis, Native American Leadership Coach at CCC.
