Additional Info.

Owner: Forest County Potawatomi

The Forest County Potawatomi tribe added a ceremonial Ribbon Walk to the dance pavilion at their Pow Wow Grounds in Wabeno, Wisconsin. The floors of the walkways are composed of ready-mix concrete in Gull Gray and texturized with a Hadley Creek stamp. In addition, the Ribbon Walk is divided into four quadrents, and the floor of each one is stamped with the footprints of either the eagle, the wolf, the bear, or the deer. This creates a wayfinding system that honors the tribe’s ceremonial symbols.
