From Traders Village:
“A two-day Native American Pow Wow with colorful tribal dance contests, an arts & crafts show, teepees, honoring ceremonies, singing and much more will be part of the 32nd Annual Texas Championship Pow Wow. This annual event is a great time to visit with old friends and make new ones. Plan to join us for this colorful and interesting event, presented by the DFW Inter-Tribal Association, at Traders Village – Houston on Saturday and Sunday, November 12 & 13, 2022.

All dance competitions will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (approximately) on Saturday and Sunday at our Pow Wow Arena.
Special morning entertainment, featuring Terry Tsotigh playing his flute and harmonica, will start at 11:30 a.m. each day with Grand Entry at 12:00 noon.
Artists, craftsmen and traders from all over the country will showcase their wares and talents at the arts & crafts show and sale under the Gray Expo. The arts & crafts sale will be open from 10:00 a.m. to sundown each day.
The Indian food booth will serve authentic Native American foods all weekend long. Everyone, spectators and competitors alike, can enjoy authentic Native American fry bread, Indian tacos and more.”

If you have never attended this event, you are in for a treat! There is so much color in the costumes! This is also a great opportunity to shoot portraits.

I will be there around 9 AM, Nov. 12 (Saturday) to get a good seat. (If you get there later, I don’t guarantee a good view.)
Parking is $5 per car. The arena is to the left side of Traders Village. (Note: There is a school across the street from Traders Village if anyone wants to carpool and save money on parking but you park at your own risk!)
Limit for this event is 20 people (no +1) since the venue will be crowded and there is limited seating.
There will be food to buy at the venue so lunch is as you wish.
