The 31st Annual Gathering of Nations, considered the most prominent Native American powwow in the North America, will host tens of thousands of people and more than 700 tribes from throughout the United States, Canada and around the world.
The three-day event will include more than 3,000 traditional Native American singers and dancers competing, and more than 800 Native American artisans, craftsmen and traders displaying and selling their work.
In addition, 27 contemporary indigenous bands will be performing a wide variety of musical genres on Stage 49 including a fashion show and DJ glow dance event.
Vendors in the Native Food Court will offer guests a large selection of food choices ranging between southwestern-style cuisine and traditional Native American fare.
As part of the Gathering of Nations, a young Native American woman will be crowned Miss Indian World and represent all native and indigenous people as a cultural goodwill ambassador.
Native American and indigenous women will represent their different tribes and traditions. The contestants will compete in the areas of tribal knowledge through interviews, essays, public speaking and traditional presentation and dance.
