The Gathering of Nations
April 23-24, 2021
Virtual Event

Powwows.com will once again be live streaming The Gathering of Nations (GON), North America's largest Pow Wow, which be held virtually for the second straight year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

GON is a two-day experience featuring dynamic Pow Wow dancing, unforgettable Native music, the Traders' Market, and plenty more. Most of the traditional Pow Wow events will be held virtually, with the notable exception of Miss Indian World, which will be canceled for the second straight year.

Watch Now!

The Miss Indian World Committee and the GON decided once again that the pageant should remain an “in-person” event. However, the current Miss Indian World, Cheyenne Kippenberger, will be conducting an outgoing presentation during this year's virtual GON on April 24, 2021. 

The Miss Indian World Pageant is scheduled to resume in-person in 2022.

    I am 72 years young and I am disabled so I cannot dance like I did but I watch the powwows and play my drum. The drumming is my heartbeat and it brings me back to our Ancestors. I miss so terribly going to powwows but at least I can watch and participate with my drum and my prayers. I am so blessed by watching the powwows they bring joy to my spirit. I will be having my fifth back surgery as soon as they figure out just how serious this will be, I am asking for prayers from my sisters and brothers. I pray that all of my sisters and brothers will be blessed abundantly with everything they need A’HO
