"Powwow was an Algonquin term, "pau-wau" or "pauau", which referred to a gathering of medicine men and spiritual leaders. "Pau-wauing" referred to a religious ceremony, usually one of curing. In the 1800's the European explorers observing these religious gatherings and dances mispronounced the word as powwow.  Jennings, The Invasion of America, p. 241. In 1646 the Massachusetts General Court decreed that “no Indian shall at any time pawwaw, or perform outward worship to their false gods, or to the devil....” ~From William Marder

In 1999 the Comanche family of Chappabitty and Quassycheeky, along with the Fredericksburg Intertribal Powwow organization co-sponsored and founded the first annual powwow to honor an unbroken treaty between the Comanche Nation and the German settlers of Fredericksburg. It was because of the warm relationship between the Comache and the Germans that family ancestors as well as the treaty survived. Our powwow is organized and run in the traditional family style and held outside at historic Ft. Martin Scott.

Chuska Mountain Gathering Spiritual Unity of Tribes-Gathering of Eagles
Mexican Springs, New Mexico
Many years ago, Black Elk had a vision, a vision of peace and unity among all peoples.. Sitting Bull also spoke of the time when there would be a gathering of the tribes. People continue to ponder these prophecies of the great leaders and to consult with the Elders regarding when and how these prophecies would be fulfilled. Many believe that time is now.  The Gatherings are peacful in nature, founded upon the very principles, which are imparted to all who gather together. While the Gatherings do not presume to be an saswer in and of themselves, each is a prototype and hope for the future.  For those who wish more information and directions please contact Agnes Thompson, Treasurer, @ 505-733-2901 or Mary Kate Nelson-Stanker @
