2019 Redbird’s Children of Many Colors Intertribal Powwow
Join us for the Redbird’s Children of Many Colors Intertribal Powwow on July 20-22, 2018 at Moorpark College in Morpark, California. The Children of Many Colors Powwow is held the third weekend in July with a two-fold goal: to provide a comfortable and pleasant environment for native people to come together, and to provide a friendly atmosphere for visitors.
Redbird’s Children of Many Colors Intertribal Powwow
Experience the sights and sounds of the powwow: Native American singing, dancing, drumming, honoring ceremonies, arts, crafts and food booths, other non profit associations, tipis, story tellers, flint knapping, traditional craft demonstrations, and many opportunities throughout the weekend for people to experience our circle. The 2016 Children of Many Colors Powwow will take place July 15-17, 2016 at Moorpark College.
The Children of Many Colors Intertribal Powwow is Redbird’s signature event. Powwows are cultural celebrations. In urban areas, people from many tribes come together, including native people from Alaska, Hawaii, the First Nations People of Canada, and Central and South America. The powwow mingles ceremony and social gathering, meeting place and market place. Most importantly, powwows offer young people an opportunity to learn not only songs and dances but cultural values. Native languages are spoken. Elders share their wisdom with younger generations. Respect, honoring our elders and generosity are among the values we learn through these gatherings.
