One of the Denver Art Museum’s longest-running events, the 24th Annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration will feature American Indian dancers, drum groups, working artists, hands-on activities, vendors, and more. The DAM’s Friendship Powwow is a celebration of the vitality of American Indian cultures. Gourd dancing will begin at 10 a.m. with the powwow grand entry at noon.
Throughout the day, visitors can watch colorful dance competitions, participate with local artists in hands-on activities, work with artist-in-residence Marie Watt in a community sewing circle, or enjoy their first (or 101st!) piece of fry bread. Don’t miss the American Indian art collection on level three of the North Building and Red, White and Bold: Masterworks of Navajo Design, 1840–1870, on Level 2 of the Hamilton Building.
On Acoma Plaza (between the Denver Art Museum and Denver Public Library).
All powwow activities and general museum admission are free.
