Manataka American Indian Council

Proudly Presents






2007 Powwow & Events Calendar

January to December


















"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


The two syllables pow and wow are not separated.  The word appears as powwow.

Midnight Sun Intertribal Powwow
Fairbanks,  AK

The Midnight Sun Intertribal Powwow is a traditional powwow meant to enrich the lives of all Native people, educate the general public, honor elders, and share our similarities and diversities. The planning began in 2000 by a small group of dedicated folks who felt a need for an intertribal get-together. In addition to the native Athabascan, Eskimo and other indigenous tribes of our region, Alaska is home to a wide variety of transplants from other tribes originating from throughout the United Sates and Canada. An intertribal powwow was needed to keep all traditions alive and to recharge our spirits.

The First Peoples' World Fair and Pow Wow, "Thunder in the Desert", will be the forum to show the world that Native Americans have survived and maintained their unique cultural values. The traditional ways of life have survived, are honored, and will continue to flourish in the 21st century for our children. The 10 day World Fair & Pow Wow will also feature parades, fashion shows, seminars, birds of prey, equestrian events, information booths and much more. This unprecedented event is to be experienced and enjoyed by family and friends of all races of people.
