When Gathering of Nations holds its powwow this year, it will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Indian nations coming together to commemorate their native cultures. Gathering of Nations, a federally recognized non-profit organization, hosts North America’s largest powwow (or conference) to promote Native-American traditions and culture. The schedule of events runs April 25-27, 2013. The three-day annual event draws thousands of Native-American dancers, singers, entertainers, artisans, and craftspeople. The affair has gained recognition for its endeavor to promote the cultures of the various tribes, even earning a Grammy Award in the Native American music category in 2011.
