  • Saturday at Pechanga Powwow

    Perfect weather, arena with manicured grass like a putting green, and the biggest fireworks display in Southern California.

    Lots of people, the bleachers are tall, very high at the top, but remain full all day long.

    The arena is packed tight with family canopies - four and five deep at places.

    Sumbuddy needs to invent a combination of family canopies and bleachers for spectators. Fit the two together? Nah...looking at all the trash thrown down under the bleachers, would need a spill-proof barrier....hmmmm cancel that last million-dollar idea LOL

    Nice to see Saginaw Grant out in the arena, still going strong.

      Yeah, the weather was so much cooler than last year. We really had a good time, the drums were amazing! On a darker note, did I hear right that Saginaw Grant's son died Thursday before the the Powwow?

            My condolences to him, all his family, loved-ones, and friends. The prayer given by Saginaw on July 4th at Pechanga was respectful and serene.

                  The powwow trail as I know it

                  I can’t exactly explain why I like to powwow so much. Call it an addiction I’m a fiend for, as I search for the next biggest and best powwow to hit. Call it an itch I can’t scratch, no matter how hard I try. Powwows are like the boyfriend I may...

                  Going Broke For Powwow
                  by Lakota Wiyan
                  Recently, my family and I attended a powwow here in Rapid City, and just about went BROKE! Even the admission alone put us back over $100.00 for the weekend. Even my four year old, who slept most of the evening sessions, had to pay $9.75 for the weekend.

                  The concession stand in the...

                  by Celena
                  I'll start out by saying the usual things were good about this powwow: the drums and the dancers. It's them that ultimately make or break a powwow, for the most part. There were some really great specials and the dancers really put up a good competition. The weather was mild, and it was not unbearably...
