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.
