There's no doubt about, Gathering of Nations is one of the most anticipated Pow Wows each year with representatives from over 500 nations attending the event. According to tourism statistics in New Mexico it's the 2nd largest event in the state, right behind the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
In its 31st year, the pow wow was examined for safety issues with reports of at least 2,000 dancers on the floor during grand entry. Local TV reporters from KRQE TV took a closer look at the concern.
Across social media I have seen others complaining about the crowds, and some would rather go to a pow wow closer to home with less people.
What do you guys think?
Did any of you attend and have a hard time moving around and seeing everything?
Does it need to be moved to a bigger arena?
