Denver March Pow*Wow
This annual celebration of Native American history
and culture features traditional dance, music, storytelling, and
arts and crafts exhibits. More than 1,500 American Indian dancers
representing over 80 tribes perform, accompanied by 65 drum groups.
Storytellers share the legacies, legends, and histories of native
tribes. Nationally acclaimed artists and craftsmen display their
works, many of which are one of a kind. First held as a Youth
Enrichment Powwow in 1974, in 1998 the event drew attendees from 50
states and 14 countries. A videotape, 22 color photos, an 11-page
report, administrative and promotional materials, and news
clippings form the documentation.
