Celebrate Moms and Native Culture at the 31st Annual Balboa Park Pow Wow on May 11-12, 2019 at Balboa Park in San Diego, California. The San Diego American Indian Health Center’s Annual Balboa Park Pow Wow is a cultural event that showcases the heritage and traditions of American Indians. As a demonstration of the cultural and spiritual traditions, participants of all ages will be present from many American Indian Tribes, bands and communities. Kumeyaay Bird Singers will open the event, as we are all guests in their homeland. Gourd Dancing will follow and then Grand Entry, which opens a day of Inter-Tribal Dancing. Well known American Indian Drum groups, Sooner Nation and Coyote Canyon, will provide the traditional music of the Pow Wow.
