2023 Annual Dance Perceptions from President Terri Parton & Former President Gary McAdams

President Terri Parton & Former President Gary McAdams talk about the tradition of the Annual Dance, the impact COVID-19 has had on our communities, and the importance of gathering together again.

Wichita Annual Dance

August 10-13, 2023

After three years of cancellations, the 45th Wichita Annual Dance was held August 10-13, 2023. It was a great success even though the Saturday program was weather-shortened.

The Committee would like to thank all who contributed to this year’s celebration with special thanks to President Parton and the Wichita Executive Committee for providing funding, to the tribal staff who worked in almost all aspects of dance operations, our sponsors, Sugar Creek Casino, Hobbs, Straus, Dean and Walker, Finley & Cook CPAs, and Quivera Enterprises, LLC.

Much gratitude is owed to all our head staff, the family of the late Cleta Ataddlety who cooked all of our meals, and the dancers and the different drums who attended.

Special recognition is also due to Committee Members Beth Parker, Cassandra McAdams, Juanita Ahtone-Moore and Head Arena Director Daryl Galindo for their many hours of hard work in making this year’s dance such a success.

The Committee will soon begin planning for the 2024 Annual Dance and will be posting the dates for next year in the near future.
