The National Gathering of Veterans – Honoring All in a Traditional Native Way is a yearly event held in the summer at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. This three day event (Sept 25 to 27, 2020) honors veterans and military personnel of all cultures, eras, and branches in a Native way. Come to participate in special panels lead by veterans and veterans service providers on topics ranging from traditional health and wellness, working with the VA, jobs and economic development for veterans after service, and more. Watch entertaining performances from cultural groups and participate in powwow-style dancing with our veterans. Purchase art and other items from veteran artists and other traditional vendors. This event is free and open to the public, and anyone who would like to join us in honoring all those in the United States military.
