DURANT -- Tribes from across the country are in Texoma for the 9th annual "Pow Wow."

It's happening at the Choctaw Events Center in Durant.

It features Native American culture and tradition with arts displays, food and a dance competition.

"Happier to be here to come back to our people. This event that we are having, it is a free event, everyone is welcome, you do not have to be Native American to come out and to participate," arena director, Michael Roberts said.

A grand entry is scheduled for 7pm.

Doors will stay open until about 10:30 and re-open Saturday at 10 am.

The Pow Wow is open and free to the public.
