ARLEE — One of the oldest and best known celebrations in Montana was formally canceled this week due to COVID-19 concerns. The Arlee Powwow Celebration Committee presented their recommendation to cancel this year’s event and Tribal Council agreed Tuesday. It was not an easy decision as many people look forward to his event, but the health and safety of the community was the deciding factor. The annual event draws people from all over the region. Rather than attempt to delay the event, the committee decided to cancel this year and look forward to 2021.
