Native American Pow Wow coming to Houston
October 10, 2012 by Mark
The 23rd Annual Texas Native American Pow Wow, presented by DFW Inter-Tribal Association, is scheduled in Houston for this November. The event will feature arts and crafts, tribal dance contests, authentic tipis, and food booths serving Native American foods, such as Indian tacos and fried bread. The Pow Wow is one of the most popular festivals in the area during the year.
Culture and heritage is the key focus during this event, with hundreds of people celebrating. Dancers will be in full costume, consisting of buckskin, feathers, beadwork, and bells, while dancing to the beat of the drums, competing for awards, and gunning for $15,000 in prize money. There will be 18 different categories for the dance contest. The age range for dance competitors goes all the way up to the 80s, with many elders keen to showcase their cultural talents.
The arts and crafts show will take place within the Expo and will open at 10:00 am each day. Many unique items will be available that may not be found elsewhere. The food booths will give visitors a chance to sample authentic cultural food items.
One of the highlights of the event will be the tipi village, where visitors will have a chance to experience what it was like to live in a portable shelter with no conveniences.
This year’s event is set for November 10 – 12. Printing companies typically work closely with event planners and participants for festivals of this type to ensure proper communication and promotion is in place. Banner printing is a common order as banners are used to draw attention to special features, specific locations, and attractive activities.
