Here’s something you don’t get to experience every weekend: Traders Village in Houston is hosting the 30th Annual Native American Championship Pow Wow this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9-10.

You’re going to see an incredible amount of culture as hundreds of Native American representing a number of tribes participate in the annual event that honors their heritage. Of course, the dancing is the highlight of the event, but the food is also going to be incredible.

The event starts at 11:30 a.m. with Terry Tsotigh playing his flute and harmonica. The Grand Entry begins at noon. And it’s totally free. Just pay $4 for parking.

There will be a good amount of Indian food booths serving authentic Native American foods, including fry bread and Indian tacos.

If you try anything, make sure you take in some frybread. The flat dough bread is either fried or deep-fried and is consumed with honey, jam powdered sugar, venison or beef. It’s also the main shell for Indian tacos. And it’s delicious! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!

Please note: Feel free to enjoy some food while the Native American dancing is going on, but be respectful while Native Americans veterans bless the ring. You’re asked to refrain from eating and talking at that point. More on the Pow Wow here.

Once you’re all filled up on great food, walk through the booths manned by artists, craftsmen, and traders and come home with some authentic Native American wares. The crafts sale actually opens at 10 a.m. and closes at sundown each day.

You can also make a day of it at Traders Village by taking advantage of the $9.99 all-day pass for the number of fun amusement park-style rides.
