— An Inter-tribal Celebration Powwow, featuring American Indian contest dancing, authentic arts and crafts, traditional food, storytelling and children's activities, will be held Saturday at Hale Arena at the American Royal complex.

Contest dancing will begin at noon and 7 p.m.

The event is presented by the Lyric Opera of Kansas City in association with the Haskell Foundation and Haskell Indian Nations University. The Lyric Opera's 40th performance season will be highlighted by the March world premiere of "Coyote Tales," an opera inspired by traditional American Indian storytelling. Haskell students played a hand in the script's development.
