About the Piikani Nation
The Piikani First Nation is a small reserve in the corner of southern Alberta. In the wide-open Prairies countryside between Lethbridge and Waterton Lakes National Park, it’s no prime tourist destination, but thousands flock to it for the annual Piikani Nation Powwow.

Featured Piikani Nation Powwow Events Include:
* Breakfasts
* IRCA Rodeo
* Horse Racing/Indian Relay
* Softball and Golf Tournament
* Parade on Sunday
More About the Piikani Nation Powwow for Participants & Visitors
IRCA Rodeo
This far into southern Alberta, you really can’t find many summer events without horses. The Piikani Nation is no exception, in addition to the music, dancing and hand games, and parade, the Piikani Nation Powwow includes a rodeo with barrel racing, steer riding and breakaway roping.

Traditional Dancing
Each dance requires special regalia. With bells on their dresses, these three are heading to perform the women’s jingle dress dance. All age groups participate in specific dances, including the fancy, traditional, jingle dress, old style chicken and grass dances.

Teepee Camp
Don’t expect a forest of teepees (tipis). Many visitors opt for trailers or hotel rooms. But a few traditional tents make up the scene with staple southern Alberta wind turbines towering in the background.

Powwow Attire
The dancers’ outfits, decorated with bones, bells or feathers, have intricate designs. The beautiful handcrafted items can take years to make.
