Pow Wow is one of the largest in California and free to the public
From Montana to the Dakotas and Alaska to Canada, the best dancers, drummers and artisans from across North America will gather to celebrate their culture and spiritual roots at the 24th Annual San Manuel Pow Wow. Dancers and drummers will compete for over $250,000 in prizes in a unique showcase of Native American culture.
The weekend-long celebration begins at Cal State San Bernardino on Friday, Oct. 11th.
In addition to competitive dancing, the event will feature contests for tiny tots, juniors and teens, as well as audience participation dancing open to all attendees. Non-competitive exhibitions include tributes to veterans, blessings, intertribal dancing and Bird Singing, which is Native American music indigenous to Southern California and the Colorado River Region.
The three-day event is free and open to the public.
