Pabanamanina Pow Wow
Come enjoy the Pabanamanina Pow Wow on September 27-29, 2019 at Paiute Palace Casino Pow Wow Grounds in Bishop, California. The pow wow is open to everyone, beginning with a parade on Friday, California Indian Day, and continues through Sunday. Hundreds of Native American dancers, drummers and others from around the nation will descend upon Bishop to show off their regalia and their traditional regional dances.

There will also be games for the kids, music, a free barbecue Saturday of a steer cut from the Tribal herd, Native American artists selling wares, an honoring of all local veterans and the crowning of Miss Pabanamanina and a junior counterpart. Handgames, one of the oldest Owens Valley Paiute and Shoshone Indian traditions that can be traced back to some Creation stories, will also be performed. Many contests take place to honor the Paiute way of life such as hand game tournaments, hand drum and clapper contests. The Paiute Palace Casino is hosting the events on its new pow wow grounds. The Pabanamanina Pow Wow is a family friendly, drug and alcohol free event.
