25th Annual Indigenous Peoples Day Pow-Wow in Berkeley

October 14, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

All are invited to our 25th Annual Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day Pow Wow 
on October 14, 2017 at the ML King Civic Center Park in Berkeley, California. 
Enjoy the sights and sounds of the powwow with intertribal dancing, gourd dancing, contest dancing, honor songs, and giveaways. Make or renew a friendship, enjoy Native American foods and crafts, and share a wonderful and powerful experience. Ride the lifestream of the pow-wow highway with us, as Indigenous culture spreads its spiritual roots and breaks through into the mainstream of the multicultural society that is appearing before our eyes today here on Turtle Island.
At the Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day Pow Wow admission is free and all dancers, traditional drums and the public are invited. Browse the Indian Market for Native American Foods and Arts & Crafts all day. Visitors are invited to participate in all round dances!
About Indigenous Peoples Day
The Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day Pow Wow is co-sponsored by City of Berkeley and the Indigenous Peoples Day Committee Project. Berkeley was the first American city to establish an Indigenous Peoples Day in place of Columbus Day, after indigenous groups and supporters came together to successfully urge City Council to establish the holiday. Since then, numerous cities and two states across the country now have their own holidays honoring indigenous communities. Columbus Day remains a national holiday, however, and cities such as Cincinnati have recently rejected proposals to establish Indigenous Peoples Days.
