Embrace New Mexico’s rich Native American heritage by attending the 25th annual Taos Pueblo Pow Wow, July 9-11.

What is a pow wow, exactly? Pow Wow Committee member Richard Archuleta explains, “A pow wow is a gathering of Indian Nations in a common circle of friendship… Indian Country is made up of many tribal nations, bands, villages, and pueblos, each with their own traditional tribal beliefs and practices. A pow wow is the common fiber which draws Indian people together. It is a time for sharing with old friends and making new friends; a time for singing and dancing. It is a time for trading; trading craft goods and trading songs.”
