Pow Wow Information
This year’s pow wow marks Berkeley’s 28th annual celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day. Celebrate with us in honor of all our ancestors, the people continuing the spirit today, and future generations. Berkeley was the first city to officially celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day in 1992.
A Virtual Commemorative Event
Live on YouTube
We gather on Zoom this year to review our history and to exhibit the beauty and joy of Indigenous social circles. In 1992 a small group of Native Americans and their staunch allies gathered to shed light on the error of Columbus day and to encourage adoption of that date as INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY. Berkeley’s Indigenous Peoples Day Powwow and Indian Market has been the ongoing celebration of that idea for 28 years. Join us by watching the live stream on Youtube
