San Manuel - Pow Wow

In the spirit of togetherness and affirmation of Native American culture, the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians will hold their annual Pow Wow on October 13th, 14th, and 15th 2017 at California State University San Bernardino. The event is always free to the public. This is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the finest Native American singers, dancers, and drummers in North America and Canada. It’s also a time to reaffirm our cultural and spiritual roots, both for individual tribes and for Native Americans as a whole.

We look forward to renewing our relationships with our Native and non-Native brothers and sisters from throughout North America and the world just as we have for each of the past 21 years.

The celebration will last for three days, with competitions for dancing, drumming and singing.

Everyone is welcome to join us and learn something about the first Americans as we share in the best of Indian Country.
