    22nd Mesa Pow Wow Set for October 28-30 at Pioneer Park

    The 22nd annual Mesa Pow Wow has been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, October 29 - 30 at Pioneer Park in Mesa, Arizona. A special pre-Pow Wow concert, featuring contemporary Native American band Clan/destine, has also been scheduled for Friday evening, October 28.

    This year’s Pow Wow is dedicated to the memory of the late Roy Track, organizer and emcee of the event since its inception in 1984. The Mesa Pow Wow received the 2005 Arizona Parks and Recreation Association award for Outstanding Cultural Awareness Program in Arizona.

    The Mesa Pow Wow is an inter-tribal Native American gathering that is open to all. Its main feature is a dance competition in a number of categories for men, women, and children, and it also features more than 60 Native American arts vendors, as well as authentic Indian food. (A limited number of vendor spaces are still available; application forms may be downloaded from the Mesa Pow Wow Web page, at, under “Events.”)

    Dance categories will include, for male dancers: Fancy War Dance, Grass Dance, Southern Straight, and Northern Traditional; and for female dancers: Fancy Shawl/Jingle Dress, Cloth/Buckskin Northern, and Cloth/Buckskin Southern. There will also be Junior categories for ages 8 to 16, and a special category for Tiny Tots (age 7 and under). Pow Wow emcee will be Chuck Benson.
