Dancers and drummers (and spectators) are invited to join the 6th Annual Bay Area American Indian Two Spirits Powwow.

Two-spirit people is a modern umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans for gender variant individuals in their communities. The organizers of the powwow say they are, “the first and only public two spirit powwow in the world.”

The annual event continues to grow. Last year, they welcomed more than 3,000 Native American and non-Native people alike. The Two-Spirit Powwow embraces traditional Native American culture while also providing a uniquely San Francisco experience.

The gender-affirming powwow continues to draw all community together, celebrating our cultures through traditional dance, crafts/art vendors, food and an opportunity for indigenous people from every tribal nation to gather and dance at their powwow.

Powwows are traditional, Inter-tribal events that promote community togetherness, healing, and wellness. The all-volunteer powwow committee holds this public Two-Spirit powwow to decolonize communities and lead the way toward accepting all genders and sexualities, realigning with Native traditions of love, togetherness, and seeing strength in differences.
