Spring PowWow Event

Since 1973, freestyle steps of toddlers commingle with the trained traditional footwork of elders as hundreds of dancers display their talents at the annual Spring PowWow. Dressed in full regalia, dancers peform jingle dress, fancy shawl, women’s traditional, men’s traditional, grass and chicken dance styles, all accompanied by the beat of traditional drum circles. Vendors wares include handmade blankets, beadwork, jewelry and dreamcatchers, with traditional foods and fry bread tacos. Open to the non-native public, this event is a fun learning experience for all.
