Native American Pow Wow and Festival

Hundreds of Native Americans representing several tribes will come from all across the United States to the event to dance, drum, entertain and share their wares with our community. Visit these booths, see many making their crafts, eat the cuisine, share in the event and take a part in dancing with us. Everyone is welcme.
Photographs are welcome when instructed by our Master of Ceremonies.
In keeping with our mission of cultural preservation, we come to share this beautiful culture that is so much a part of the Chattanooga and surrounding areas history through out outreach programs.
Again this year, we will have health awareness at the event by working with the Mary Ellen Locher Foundation to bring the BIG PINK BUS to everyone. Mammograms will be free to anyone attending this event. Health is very important to not only our people but for everyone as well. VISIT THE BIG PINK BUS!!

Watch our dancers compete with each other in their fabulous regalia. Many of these dances you see represent us in various ways. The Jingle Dance and Fancy Shawl Dance are medicine dances. The Grass Dancers always open our circle to lay down the (symbolic) grass for us to cleanse the circle for our dance. The Traditional Dancers represent our elders and upcoming young men and women. Our tiny tot dancers are our future.
Hear the sounds of many drums, the heartbeat of everyone and our mother earth.

SEE YOU THERE!
