The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians keeps cultural tradition alive by holding annual powwows. The Indio Powwow takes place on the Cabazon Indian Reservation located in Indio, California. Included in the celebration are Native American dance competitions for contestants of all ages, bird singing, drum contests and peon games. There are also opportunities for visitors to join dancers in the arena during non-competitive, inter-tribal dancing.
Visitors to the Indio Powwow also have an opportunity to taste Native American foods such as Indian fry bread and shop among vendors for jewelry, weaving’s, dream catchers and other types of Native arts and crafts.
