The Gathering At The Falls Pow Wow was held earlier this year during the last weekend of August. The pow wow is usually takes place at Riverpoint Park in Spokane, Washington but was relocated to the Spokane Convention Center due to air quality concerns.
“The history of this event, and the significance of gathering at the Spokane River, goes back generations. It has been a sacred tradition for many tribes around the northwest to gather at the river because it gives life, love, hope, and a sense of revitalization. During past years, Riverfront Park has been home to this event and it has become a tradition for people of all nations to gather and celebrate those gifts the river provides, and to create or renew friendships. Dancers and singers, young and old, come from both near and far to showcase their songs and their dance styles for our community. It is, without a doubt, a unique cultural gathering that brings in thousands from the local community to enjoy.”
YouTube user jfergusonphotos was on hand to document the grand entry and other specials at the pow wow.
