2019 Bay Area American Indian Two Spirits Powwow
Saturday, February 2, 2019 | 10 am to 6 pm
Festival Pavilion, Fort Mason Center, SF
FREE

Powwows are traditional, Inter-tribal events that promote community togetherness, healing, and wellness. The Two-Spirit powwow is held each year to help decolonize the communities and realign with Native traditions of togetherness, seeing strength in their differences, and accepting all genders and sexualities.

The Two-Spirit Powwow embraces Native traditions while also providing a uniquely San Francisco experience. The annual event draws the community together, celebrating the cultures through traditional dance, arts, food, and an opportunity for indigenous people from every tribal nation to gather and dance at the powwow. Last year, more than 4000 Native and non-Native people alike were welcomed.
