    Always held on the third weekend of July, the Honor the Earth Pow-wow is attended every year by nearly 10,000 people from the U.S., Canada, and other countries. The story of Honor The Earth is basically one of people standing up for their rights, and a humbling beginning by a small number of LCO people who wanted a better future for their tribe and people. We must not forget the many sacrifices that were made on our behalf by our relatives before us. We must give thanks for our many blessings and show honor and respect to our Mother Earth, not just today but throughout our lifetime. Traditional Native American music, dancing, crafts and food create an authentic tribal experience and are enjoyed by thousands of people each year who join each other in celebration as their relatives did for hundreds of years previously.

    Each year in mid-September, thousands of fat tired fliers descend on the towns of Cable and Hayward in northwestern Wisconsin to take on the off-road bicycle tests of endurance and agility offered during the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival weekend. Since its inception in 1983, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival has built a popularity and reputation that is unmatched in the sport today. From the 27 hardy cyclists who lined up to challenge the unknown trails of the Chequamegon in the first year, to the sold out limited field of 2,500 who are chosen by a random lottery, the Festival has earned the title of the "Nation's Most Popular Off Road Bicycle Adventure." For more information call (715) 798-3594 or visit www.cheqfattire.com.
