21st Annual Chumash Inter-Tribal Pow Wow

Where: LIVE OAK CAMPGROUND: 4650 Highway 154 , SANTA YNEZ, CA
Our inter-tribal Pow-Wow has featured drummers from the U.S. and Canada, a variety of foods and beautiful hand-made native crafts. Although Pow-Wows weren’t traditionally part of the Chumash culture we wanted to provide the community with both an educational and cultural experience that focuses on Native American music, arts and customs.
In addition to providing an exciting and rewarding experience for those attending the Pow-Wow, our goal in producing this inspiring event is to promote self-reliance and pride in Native Americans by honoring our traditions and culture.
