Indio Powwow starts today
Three day event brings beauty and history to life
The annual Indio Powwow will start today at the Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
Tribes will participate in dances, singing and games during the three- day event. There will be at least one "grand entry" on each day of the event, when dancers form a procession. The powwow is sponsored by the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians.
There will be Native American foods, such as Indian fry bread, along with crafts, jewelry and art. Visitors can join dancers in the arena during noncompetitive intertribal dancing.
The powwow will start at 5 p.m. today, and the grand entry will take place at 8 p.m. On Saturday the powwow will begin at 11 a.m., with the grand entry at 1 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. On Sunday the powwow will begin at 11 a.m., with the grand entry at 1 p.m.
