Chattanooga Pow Wow on the River
Representatives from over 20 tribes of American Indians will gather for a heritage celebration and powwow. While the majority of the participants will be Cherokee, there also will be members of the Poarch Creek, Muskogee, Seminole, Lenape, Chickasaw, Comanche, Apache, Lakota Sioux, Micmac, Winnebago and Navajo tribes in attendance.
The main event of the Chattanooga Pow Wow on the River each day is the Grand Entry, a procession in which the tribes enter the pavilion in full dress. It is a majestic ceremony with plenty of pageantry. Grand Entry times are noon and 6 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday. The Grand Entry is what opens the circle for all the dancers and the actual gathering to begin.
The annual Native American Heritage Festival and Pow Wow on the River brings to the Chattanooga community a celebration of Native American heritage and culture. This event, held at the First Tennessee Pavilion is open to the public. The festival brings to the Chattanooga area professional Native American performers and artists and is designed to educate and enhance the community’s awareness of Native American heritage and customs and pays tribute to those who once occupied these lands.
