2019 Kyiyo Pow Wow
All are welcome at the 50th Annual Kyiyo Pow Wow on April 19-20, 2019 at the Adams Center in Missoula, Montana. The Annual Kyiyo Pow Wow Celebration is one of the oldest traditions of Kyiyo. The Annual Pow Wow Celebration unifies all Native American from across the nation in an event full of dancing, singing, and sharing of stories between all in attendance. The celebration is a time to preserve the rich heritage of Native Americans and renew the thoughts of the old traditions.
The diversity of each tribe represented at the Kyiyo Powwow is shown within the dancing styles and traditional dress of the dancers.
