The annual San Manuel Pow Wow, hosted by the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians, was held on October 7, 8 and 9th at California State University San Bernardino.
As they usually do, the pow wow hosted special contests, including the Sweethearts Dance Special. This year's winners were Jocey Bird and Trae LittleSky and many videos went viral of the two dancing.
