2024 Northwest Tennessee Native American Educational Powwow

Sep 19th - Sep 22nd

Our heritage park and museum will be the location of a four-day Native American Powwow to be held Thursday, Sept. 19 – Sunday, Sept. 22, 2024.

The goal of this event, unique in Northwest Tennessee, 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 2024 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.

To kick off the 2024 powwow, a free concert will be provided by Arvel Bird on Thursday, Sept, 19.

More details on the 2024 powwow will be released soon!
