Since 2010, the powwow welcomes friends and families from the Native community, and the public to gather in festivities celebrating Native culture and tradition. This time is special for many as they share and practice Native dance, music, art, food and community. NAYA celebrates the tradition of powwow with drumming and dance for men and women of all ages. Our tiny tots exhibition dancing showcases the youth of our community, and throughout the day dancers of all generations step out to display their talent and pride in Native traditions and identity.
