97th Annual Spokane Tribal Pow Wow in Wellpinit

The Spokane Tribe's annual Pow Wow held on the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, Washington is scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 1, and run through Monday, September 5.

The Pow Wow will kick off with the coronation of the Spokane Tribal Royalty and children's Pow Wow at 7:00pm on Thursday, September 1st. Traditional dancing, singing and drumming will continue at the Wellpinit Fairgrounds through Monday, September 5th. Other activities will include food vendors, arts/crafts vendors, traditional tribal stick games and a live auction. The Spokane Tribe's Annual Indian Art Auction will begin at 4pm on Saturday, September 3rd.

The tribal event is free of charge and open to the public.
