All are welcome at the 12th Annual Lawilowan American Indian Festival on March 10, 2018 at Shippensburg University in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. Lawilowan American Indian Festival is our Indoor, Midwinter gathering, that began in March of 2007. The Powwow provides an opportunity for both observers and participants to connect with American Indian culture on a deeper level in a natural environment. The one day, non-competitive, traditional powwow is one of the largest in the area and draws as many as 500 dancers, 24 vendors, and about 2000 attendees each year.

The Lawilowan American Indian Festival provides a family friendly environment for local native peoples to celebrate the many tribes from which they hail and share their traditions and customs with the public. Come out and enjoy great family fun as you experience Native American Drumming, Singing, Dancing, crafts and vendors, Native food and the Native American Flute Circle.

Seating is limited, so bring folding chairs.
