Native American culture will come alive with Native American song and dance at the festive Winter Gathering POW WOW presented by the Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians, December 7-9th in the parking lot at Spotlight 29 Casino. Admission is FREE.

Indigenous peoples from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico will attend the gathering for a spectacular display of traditional handmade regalia, dancing, songs, arts, crafts and food. The Winter Gathering POW WOW provides a great opportunity for people of all ages to participate in a memorable cultural event filled with tradition and heritage.

The Winter Gathering POW WOW brings multiple tribes together to compete in various dance and drum contests. Guests will see dancers in the “tiny tots” group (6 years and under), up to the “golden age” group, which will feature both men and women ages 65 and older. Cash prizes are awarded to the top performers in each category. Special performances include the Ironman Fancy, as well as the Men and Women’s Team Dance.

A highlight of the Winter Gathering POW WOW is the Grand Entry, where all of the tribal dancers enter in a procession. Grand Entry times are Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 1 p.m.



Guests can also enjoy delicious food, including authentic recipes like Native American Fry Bread and Indian Tacos. A variety of vendors will be on hand selling items such as jewelry, artwork as well as clothing and apparel, pottery, and traditional dream catchers.
