52nd Annual Kyiyo Pow Wow
April 17-18, 2020
The Annual Kyiyo Pow Wow Celebration is one of the oldest traditions of Kyiyo. The Annual Pow Wow Celebration unifies all Native American from across the nation in an event full of dancing, singing, and sharing of stories between all in attendance. The celebration is a time to preserve the rich heritage of Native Americans and renew the thoughts of the old traditions. The diversity of each tribe represented at our Pow Wow is shown within the dancing styles and traditional dress of the dancers. Although from a wide array of backgrounds, each dancer comes together to celebrate to celebrate what their culture truly represents. Each year, our Pow Wow continues to grow which shows the power of our people and leaves the message that our culture will never die out.
