A little background on this story. The banner line is based on a quote in the letter to the editor, and the quote (and letter) are from a non-Native. The Kipona powwow, held in Pennsylvania, is a one-day,non-Native powwow that is part of the Kipona Wine, Art, and Blues Festival. Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission officials cited five vendors for illegal animal parts - items made from turtle shells. The items were deemed illegal because in Pennsylvania permits are required to sell turtle shells.
