It is important to Prescott Powwow to encourage elders and youth to come together. This makes it more possible to ensure that the culture lives on through the future generations.
Today many powwows have become a competitive event that can sometimes takes away from the spiritual realm of the gathering. Prescott Powwow's mission is to give a powwow event that focuses more on the social and spiritual aspects of powwow.
The public is welcome and encouraged to come watch and even participate in our circle. Please see Powwow 101 to learn powwow etiquette as spectators and participants.
