Native America Calling: The powwow trail returns
Tuesday, April 26, 2022

The powwow trail returns
After two dark years, the Gathering of Nations returns as an in-person event.

That follows the successful completion of Denver March Powwow last month, and the Crow Fair last July. The events and the many others that are planned are a force of optimism even as coronavirus cases continue to climb in certain places.

Native America Calling will celebrate the celebrations and calculate the lingering risks as people head back to the powwow trail.
