Over 180 vendor booths will fill the Denver Coliseum to the brim with authentic crafts and artwork, amazing native food and a form of native storytelling that’s guaranteed to be entertaining.
Denver March Powwow
Each session of the Denver March Powwow begins with the colorful and stirring Grand Entry. It kicks off with the Heart Beat drum group singing the committee’s song, “A Living Hoop.” Following them is an eagle staff and American, Indian nation and other flags. Once everyone is in the dance arena and with the spectators still standing, the flags are raised to the accompaniment of a flag song. This is followed by a veterans’ honoring song — the Victory Dance. There are two Grand Entries on Friday and Saturday and one on Sunday.
Besides plenty of intertribal dancing for all participants, the Denver March Powwow features over 30 dance contest categories and over a dozen special contests.
