One of the Denver Art Museum’s longest-running events, the 25th 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, watch colorful dance competitions, participate with local artists in hands-on activities, and enjoy your first (or 101st!) piece of fry bread. Also, don’t miss the American Indian art collection on level three of the North Building.
Native Arts Artist-in-Residence Jeffrey Gibson will be screening a trailer of his new video project, one becomes the other, during the powwow.
All powwow activities and museum admission are free. For more information, download the program (PDF) or call 720-913-0130.
