TULSA, Okla. – The Intertribal Indian Club of Tulsa will host its 35th annual Powwow of Champions on Aug. 17-19 in the Mabee Center at Oral Roberts University.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. on Aug. 17 with dancing beginning at 6 p.m. On Aug 18 and 19., doors open at 10 a.m. with dancing beginning at noon.

The Mabee Center will come alive in a colorful expression of dance, drum music and song as citizens of tribal nations throughout the country gather to honor, strengthen and share traditions and with each other and the general public.

More than 300 dancers, dressed in full Native American dance regalia will participate throughout the weekend in ceremonies and dances, including grand entries, inter-tribal dances and dance competitions.

The grand entries mark the beginning of powwow sessions, led by the eagle staff and the United States flag carried by a Native American color guard.

In the competitive sessions, dancers use the whole arena to exhibit their skills with grace and finesse while attempting to catch the judges’ eyes with their personal style, footwork falling on the beat of the music and striking dance clothes.

The Powwow of Champions will also feature an arts and crafts mart with a selection of traditional and contemporary jewelry, artwork, beadwork, paintings and quality hand-crafted items, rarely seen in one location.

Traditional foods will also be a prominent part of the powwow. Fry bread, corn soup, Indian tacos will be available as well as many other tempting and tasty items.

Parking is free parking. A souvenir program book that includes information on the different dance styles will be available for purchase.

The Powwow of Champions is a family event and is an alcohol and drug free event.
