With the change in venue to a park located in closer proximity to residential areas; we hope to increase the number of participants in the wacipi. We also hope to have increased participation from dancers and drum groups. In order to determine how we may better serve and attract more dancers we will conduct a 'performers' survey'. In addition, the new venue should help facilitate our ability to conduct a more accurate audience/participant count.
This was evident not only by the participation of 95 dancers/drummers representing several nations including Lakota, Dakota, Anishinaabe-Ojibwe, Tsalagi, Winnebago, Navaho and Aztec; but also by the attendance of approximately 500 audience participants. Every member of the Advisory Committee and staff personnel purposely engaged with audience and performing participants to glean information about the wacipi. Responses were extremely positive for both 2nd or 3rd time attendees who looked forward to the event, and from first time visitors who were attending their very first wacipi.
