Event Info:

The Gathering of the Pai Festival is coming to Camp Verde on June 17 to 19. The annual event brings the Pai or Yuman-speaking tribes together from Arizona, California and Mexico to celebrate culture, song, and ceremony. This year’s gathering will be hosted by the Yavapai-Apache Nation on the reservation off of Middle Verde Road, exit 289 on I-17.

“The purpose behind the Pai festival is for the tribes to come together to share knowledge, food, songs, and stories,” said Delores Plunkett, Yavapai Culture program manager for the Yavapai-Apache Nation. Plunkett says the yearly event features cultural demonstrations, storytelling, traditional food, and games and is open to the public. Entrance is free of charge.

Last year’s gathering was hosted by the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe. Normally, all the Pai tribes: Ft. McDowell, Prescott, Yavapai-Apache, Hualapai, Havasupai, Mojave, and Pai Pai from Mexico are represented at the event. The weekend festival will showcase at least 12 different dance groups and the pubic will have an opportunity to view gourd and cradle board making demonstrations, according to Plunkett. The Miss Pai Ceremonial, a contest involving traditional skills and regalia for Pai women, will take place beginning in the evening of the first day of the festival and will continue until Sunday. For more information call Monica Van Ausdall at (928) 567-7071 or the Yavapai-Apache OFFICE OF PUBLIC RELATIONS at (928) 567-1006.
