2019 Ohlone Big Time Gathering and Powwow
All are welcome at the 27th Annual Ohlone Big Time Gathering and Powwow on April 26-28, 2019 at the Tony Cerda Park in Pomona, California. The Ohlone Big Time Gathering is the Ohlone’s annual powwow as California Indians had Gatherings instead of Powwows historically. Hosted by the Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Tribe, the three-day event usually held on the last weekend in April that annually draws an average of 2,000 people and tribal representatives from both East Coast and West Coast tribes. It is a chance to make connections, meet family and friends, and most importantly, to show the local community that the Ohlone are still here.
