EXPERIENCE NORTH AMERICA’S BIGGEST POWWOW

APRIL 26, 27 & 28, 2018

at the Powwow Grounds – Tingley Coliseum /Expo New Mexico
Albuquerque, NM, U.S.A.

In the past 35 years the Gathering of Nations has grown from an early, simple dream to one of the world’s most recognized annual festivals.

From the beginning the concept has always been to produce an event where Native people can come together each year to celebrate and share culture, and a place where singers and dancers can feel confident that competition is fair to all.

From those genuine and humble beginnings that the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow has evolved into the event you see today, as well as its role in many community outreach efforts. None of this could be have been accomplished without the loyalty and dedication of good volunteers, friends and family.

It was here at the Gathering of Nations that “powwow fever” has shed its warmth on such a wonderful lifestyle, and continues to be of great appeal and intrigue to young people interested in learning more about their own personal tribal traditions and the powwow way.

Flint Carney, a long time friend and member of the Kiowa tribe, who said, “The greatest thing about the Gathering of Nations is the respect that is shown to all Native people of the world.”

This is the way of powwow life and teachings, which are provided and handed down from the elders to the younger generations. The Gathering of Nations experience does not end when you leave and head for home, but rather continues in your heart and mind, remains with you down the road to the next event, powwow or your own personal family gathering(s).

Many people from around the world have made the Gathering of Nations Powwow their travel destination. The Gathering of Nations has grown to become more than just a “Powwow”, it’s an experience!

  • Thee Gathering of Nations has had the opportunity to blossom into the most enjoyable, cultural, and entertaining Native festival in North America.
  • Open with the Gathering of Nations song for grand entry, the powwow program also includes the crowning of Miss Indian World. Its pageantry, along with its cultural beauty, exemplifies the pride and dignity of the culture and traditions of Native women across the United States and Canada.
  • Only at the Gathering of Nations will you partake in the isles of shopping throughout the Indian Trader’s Market, enjoying the best of native foods, music on Powwow Alley’s Stage 49 featuring the Best in Native American Music Performances and Entertainment!
