26th Annual Denver Art Museum Friendship Powwow & American Indian Cultural Celebration
September 12, 2015
One of the Denver Art Museum’s longest-running events, the 26th Annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration will feature American Indian dancers, drum groups, working artists, hands-on activities, artist booths, and more. The DAM’s Friendship Powwow is a celebration of the vitality of American Indian cultures. Gourd dance will begin at 10 a.m. with the powwow grand entry at noon.
Throughout the day, visitors can watch colorful dance competitions, participate with artists in hands-on activities, and enjoy their first (or 101st!) piece of fry bread. Native Arts Artist-in-Residence Tom Haukaas will be on hand demonstrating floral beadwork and discussing his process. Also, don’t miss the American Indian art collection on levels two and three of the North Building.
