The Sacred Springs Pow Wow in San Marcos, Texas is a newcomer to the pow wow scene. It is currently in its fourth year of production and is sponsored by local nonprofit Indigenous Cultures Institute. The Institute hopes to make the Sacred Springs Powwow one of the “signature events of San Marcos,” in honor of the Spring Lake area which is recognized as one the oldest, continuously inhabited sites in North America and a sacred site to many Native Americans.

Back in 2012 photographer Jill Dufour with ThunderCat Studios attended the pow wow and took some great shots. Check them out!
