The 18th Annual United San Antonio Pow Wow Is This Weekend


  • United San Antonio Pow Wow, Inc. | Facebook

The United San Antonio Pow Wow kicks off for two days this weekend, and hosted by USAPW, inc. and the American Indians In Texas At The Spanish Colonial Missions.

For the 18th year in a row, the Pow Wow is dedicated to promoting the history and culture of America's first inhabitants, combining a grand entry procession, traditional drumming, gourd dances and a Native American church service. Stated in their mission, they provide American Indians with the opportunity to participate, practice, teach and exchange tribal traditions among all tribes, enlighten non-American Indians and dispel stereotypes surrounding the people and their culture. 

Presided over by Lee Walters, the gathering unites members of nearly 50 Native American tribes and features an “Indian Two Step” led by Amileah Davis. Vendors will be offering everything from arts and crafts to frybread and buffalo burgers. The event is free to the public and the USAPW is accepting donations.
