Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas 44th Annual Powwow
LIVINGSTON- The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas will be hosting their 44th Annual Powwow June 1 & 2, on the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation. Native Americans from around the United States and Canada will join together for a weekend of competition dancing and singing.
A powwow is a gathering of North America’s native people. A modern powwow is a specific type of event where both Native American and non-Native American people meet to dance, sing, socialize, and honor American Indian culture. Powwows are celebrations of community and spirituality, featuring the drum and dance as well as vendors offering traditional food and crafts.
Powwow is a big social event, like a big family reunion, where everyone comes to renew acquaintances and to dance together – put aside differences and help bridge the gap between the First Nations peoples and the non-native world.
Festivities will kick off at 5 p.n. on Friday and carry on until midnight on Saturday.
The Reservation is located 16 miles east of Livingston, Texas on US Highway 190.For more information please contact Tobine Alec at (936)563-1120 or Sharon Miller at (936)563-1131.
