Historically, Native American tribes have come together annually at powwows to trade, socialize and honor feats of bravery and achievement. Fall gatherings celebrated the successful harvest and allowed people to come together to feast, dance sing and hold ceremonies. The 27th Indio Powwow will be no different as tribes from across the United States and Canada come in elaborate regalia to show their skill in dance and singing competitions.

A highlight of each powwow is the Grand Entry, when all the dancers form a procession, winding into the arena in a clockwise direction. Preceding the dancers are the Eagle Staff and the bird singers. At the Indio Powwow, the grand entries are scheduled for Friday, November 28th at 8pm, Saturday November 29th at 1pm and 8pm and Sunday November 30th at 1pm.

The 27th Indio Powwow will pay tribute to those returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in special ceremonies at 11am on Saturday, November 29th and Sunday, November 30th.

Visitors to the Indio Powwow will have an opportunity to taste Native American foods such as Indian Fry Bread and shop among 60 vendors for jewelry, weavings, dream catchers and other types of Native American art. There are also opportunities to join dancers in the arena during the noncompetitive intertribal dancing.
