One Nation Walking Together sponsors an annual one-day Native American Indian Intertribal Powwow each year, and this year will be held June 10, 2017. This event is a celebration of Native history and culture and features Native drums and dancers, Native art and artisans, live wolf and birds of prey exhibits, children’s activities, Native vendors and food, and much more. CASH PRIZES FOR DANCERS

This is a Traditional Powwow, where American Indians from all tribes join in dancing, singing, visiting, renewing old friendships and making new ones. About 2,000 to 3,000 people attend annually. This is a great opportunity for non-Natives to learn and ask questions about American Indian culture, history, dances and music. Learn the meaning and significance of drums, songs and dances in Native traditions and culture. See the different regalia worn by dancers as they demonstrate some of the various Native dances. Native artisans will demonstrate their skills and exhibit their paintings, jewelry, beadwork, and more.

Natives, non-Natives, people of all ages and from all Tribes are welcome. Join us for a fun-filled and exciting day. Please bring a non-perishable food item to feed the hungry.
