Powwow Grand Entry

We welcome you!

Welcome to the Mid-America All-Indian Center's American Indian Festival! Saturday and Sunday you will see a colorful example of a contest powwow. There will be lots of dancers! You can read through the descriptions of the dances and powwow etiquette to help familiarize yourself with the events in the powwow arena. You can help your children create artwork. You can also shop a wide variety of arts and crafts booths. Visit the food court for a taste of Indian Tacos.

So much to see and do!
