Experience the excitement of centuries of culture asdancers from across North America compete to become the Champion of Champions.
Nations, Dancers, Singers, Drummers
This event has become a major tourist attraction locally, nationally and internationally. This year promises to be just as spectacular as the last.
Prize money is given to those dancers and singers who will be deemed to be the most agile, astute and exciting. Many dancers and singers representing every major North American native cultural group dressed in their finest regalia are expected to attend.
Many Native Americans from the United States now participate as well. The forum for this expression in the arts has been coined a “Powwow” and is always presented with the utmost dignity. The event takes place in the open-air, during the afternoon and on into the evening under lights. It has been held at Chiefswood Park, on the grounds of the former Estate of the Mohawk Poetess E. Pauline Johnson, at the Six Nations of the Grand River Community.
