2018 San Luis Rey Mission Inter-Tribal Powwow This Weekend

0

All are invited to the 22nd Annual San Luis Rey Mission Inter-Tribal Powwow on June 9-10, 2018 at the San Luis Rey Mission Grounds in Oceanside, California. There will be traditional dancing, arts and crafts booths, food vendors and opportunity drawings. The San Luis Rey Mission Inter-Tribal Powwow is held the second weekend of June on Saturday and Sunday, and is free and open to the public.

The San Luis Rey Mission Inter-Tribal Powwow is one of the largest in the region, and it is the only powwow presented on the grounds of a California mission. A highlight of the powwow is the Grand Entry that takes place at the beginning of each dance session (see below schedule). Thousands are expected over the weekend, with the majority being non-native spectators. The powwow, sponsored by The San Luis Rey Mission Indian Foundation, has a reputation as a very friendly, welcoming, family-oriented powwow with beautiful weather and a beautiful location.

Throughout each day, men, women and youth dancers will participate in intertribal competition dancing (fancy shawl, jingle, grass, hoop and traditional styles) and drumming. Vendors will sell Indian arts and crafts and food booths will sell burgers, hot dogs and powwow favorites like Indian tacos and fry bread.

Each year, the San Luis Rey Mission Inter-Tribal Powwow draws participants from 15 to 20 tribes, including the Diegueño tribe and all seven Luiseño bands in San Diego County, as well as tribes from San Bernardino, Northern California, the Southwest and Missouri, according to foundation Administrator Carrie Lopez.
