More events at The Pit

Celebrate Native American and indigenous culture with more than 3,000 Native American singers and dancers wearing traditional regalia or outfits, and more than 800 artisans and craftsmen, displaying and selling their work.

Over 3,000 indigenous / Native American / Indian dancers and Singers representing more than 500 tribes from Canada and the United States come to Gathering of Nations PowWow annually to participate socially and competitively.

The Gathering of Nations will host more than 700 tribes from throughout the United States, Canada, and around the world. In addition, a young Native American woman will be crowned the 2013 Miss Indian World to represent all native and indigenous people as a cultural goodwill ambassador, and Stage 49 will host 20 bands performing contemporary music from a variety of genres.

The Gathering of Nations is an amazing cultural event and people travel thousands of miles to attend and participate. I thought that it might make a great calendar addition as the event marks 30 years of honoring and showcasing Native American and indigenous cultures and traditions from throughout the world.
