Special Notice: On Saturday, July 30, 2022 at our 43rd Annual Grand Mid Summer Pow Wow,

The Family of Sam and Vickie Tarrant

are sponsoring a special honoring program for them at the Thunderbird Powwow. Vickie and Sam were long-time Thunderbird members who passed away during the pandemic.

A giveaway and Women’s and Men’s Traditional Special Dance contests each offer a total of $1300 in prize money.

This spectacular annual 3-day event is NYC’s largest Powwow and one of the top ten in the USA. It features intertribal Native American dance competitions by over forty Indian Nations. The Grand Entry showcases the dancers’ full regalia and The Sunset Lighting of the Bonfire is an enchanting ceremony. Program features an expansive market of authentic Native American art, crafts, jewelry and food (don’t miss the fry bread!). Singing by The Silver Cloud Singers, Heyna Second Sons, Smoke Dance, Native American Hoop Dance, Inter-Tribals and more. An immersive cultural experience not to be missed!
