Spotlight 29 Casino hosts Winter Gathering Pow Wow

11 November 2013

COACHELLA, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Native American culture will come alive with Native American song and dance at the festive Winter Gathering POW WOW presented by the Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians from Friday through Sunday, December 6-8, 2013, at the Spotlight 29 Casino Spotlight Showroom. Admission is free.

Native Americans from across the United States and Canada attend the gathering for a breathtaking display of traditional handmade dresses, dancing, songs, arts, crafts and food. For those who haven’t attended a POW WOW, this is an opportunity for people young and old to participate in a memorable cultural event steeped in Native American tradition and heritage.

The Winter Gathering POW WOW brings tribes together to compete in various dances and drum contests. In previous years, more than 300 people of all ages competed. Guests will see dancers in the “tiny tots” group (six years and under), up to the “golden age” group, which will feature both men and women age 65 and older. Prizes are awarded for the top performers in every category. Be sure to join the fun on Saturday for the Spectacular Iron Man Fancy Special and on Sunday for our Men and Women’s Team Dance Special.

A highlight of the Winter Gathering POW WOW is the Grand Entry, where all of the tribal dancers enter the Showroom in a procession. Grand Entry times are Friday at 7:00 p.m., Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

Enjoy food, including authentic recipes like Native American Fry Bread and Indian Tacos. A variety of vendors will be on hand selling items such as Native American jewelry including bracelets, earrings, turquoise jewelry, silver jewelry and beaded jewelry. There will also be Kachina Dolls, Native American Art Work, clothing and apparel, Navajo Pottery and traditional Dream Catchers.
