Event Details

The Discovery Park of America heritage park and museum will host a three-day Native American Powwow October 27-29.

The goal of this event is to provide a place for Indigenous people from tribes around the country to celebrate their culture while educating Discovery Park visitors on this aspect of our nation’s past, present and future.

The 2023 Northwest Tennessee Native American Educational Powwow will include competitions and displays of Indigenous storytelling, drumming, singing and competition dancing. There will also be Native American artisans, craftsmen and traders displaying and selling their work. Food vendors will provide opportunities to enjoy traditional cuisines like fry bread, tacos and hominy. All powwow activities take place on Discovery Park’s great lawn!

Those with documented tribal affiliation who want to compete or reserve a booth at the 2023 Northwest Tennessee Native American Education Powwow should call Kim and David Bugg at 901-833-6411 or email powwow@discoveryparkofamerica.com. To learn more about Native American pow-wows, click here.
