Shinnecock Indian Powwow

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Some 30,000 people visit to the powwow grounds located on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in Southampton to partake in the celebration of the culture including (but not limited to) many Native Americans around the country. Every year there are always award winning artists that showcase their talent throughout the weekend, and native artisans who sell artisanal goods and souvenirs. The program begins at 3pm on Friday with the first Grand Entry of dancers from all over the Americas at 7pm. Each day there will be competitive dancing, guest entertainment, prayers, ceremonial dances, the acknowledgement of sponsors and visiting dignitaries. We honor our veterans for protecting this life as we know it. Grand Entry re-occurs each preceding day at 12:30pm and 7pm with the exception of Monday. The event concludes Monday evening at 6pm with the awarding of prizes to the competing drums and dancers. There will also be 100 Native American arts, crafts and food vendors from all over the Americas. Cultural enrichment and the opportunity for cultural education abounds as Native American representatives from every region are available to demonstrate and share their stories to all who ask.
