Looking for something fun and different to do this weekend with the whole family? Take a trip out to Traders Village for the 30th Annual Native American Championship Pow Wow this Saturday and Sunday, November 9-10.
Hundreds of Native Americans representing numerous tribes from across the country will participate in this popular annual event that honors their culture and heritage.
So, what can you expect at the Pow Wow?
The highlight of the event are the dance contests. These colorful, tribal dance-offs feature Native Americans of all ages — from little ones to seniors — competing for prize money. All dance competitions take place from 10 am to 6 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
The dancers will be donning beautiful, colorful Native American regalia, so you’ll want to take some pictures!
About the Pow Wow
For the uninitiated, a Pow Wow is a Native American event that’s aimed at rekindling old friendships while also celebrating new friendships, all while celebrating and honoring their rich culture and heritage. That means it’s the perfect place to meet some new friends at the Village this weekend and to invite some old friends to the event!
If this is your first Pow Wow, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Be respectful of the culture and dance arena.
- Take plenty of photos (ask for permission if taking an up-close portrait)!
- Have fun and dance when the time comes.
- Feel free to donate during the blanket dance.
More Fun Activities
The dance contests are just the beginning of the fun that will be taking place this weekend. Native American artists and craftsmen from across the country will be selling their goods at the market. You’ll also have the chance to enjoy authentic Native American foods, like delicious fry bread, Indian tacos, and more!
Oh yeah… the event is totally FREE to attend and just $4 for parking!
