Considered the most prominent Native American event in North America, the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow will host tens of thousands of people and bring together over 700 tribes from the US, Canada, and Indigenous people from around the World. This three-day event will include more than 3,000 traditional Native American singers/drum groups and dancers competing for prizes. The Native Food Court will offer a large variety of food selections ranging from Southwestern-style cuisine, traditional Native American fare, including the favorite Frybread and Indian Tacos. This year the Gathering of Nations will expand the food court to include local food trucks and food vendors offering healthy food options. Must see and amazing photo opportunities at the Gathering of Nations Powwow are the Traditional Horse & Rider Regalia Parade, celebration the pride and heritage of the horse culture among many tribes, the Crowning of Miss Indian World (Saturday, April 27 in the evening), and of course the main events of the traditional dancing and singing inside Tingley Coliseum.

A highlight of the Gathering of Nations is the Crowning of Miss Indian World. Native American women between 18-25 years-old vie for the Title of Miss Indian World, compete in several culturally based competition categories (interview, public speaking, dance, essay, and traditional talent); each contestant’s presentations are representative of their respective tribes. Miss Indian World serves as a representative of Native and Indigenous people as a cultural goodwill ambassador. The Miss Indian World Pageant is not a “beauty pageant”, it is exemplary of Native American Culture and identity presented from the perspective of Native American women.
