A great way to connect with fellow Potawatomi and learn more about our heritage is to visit our reservation lands in Shawnee, Oklahoma during the Potawatomi Family Reunion Festival held on the last weekend in June each year. A rotating set of families is honored each year with special dances recognizing the families, reserved family meeting areas, family photo shoots, and the like. Below is a listing of honored families through 2021:
2018: Anderson, Beaubin, Bertrand, Bourbonnais, Ogee, Pettifer, Toupin, Wano, Yott
