American Indian & Alaska Native Heritage Month Social Powwow

November 2, 2019

Activity Center at Bohrer Park

The City's Multicultural Affairs Committee has partnered with the Indian Health Service Headquarters Employees Association (EA) to host its 7th American Indian & Alaska Native Heritage Month Social Powwow. The event is free and open to the public.

A Powwow is an all-inclusive social gathering recognizing and celebrating the rich heritage and cultures of American Indians & Alaska Natives. This family-friendly, community event will feature a variety of social activities, including traditional songs and dances, games & food. There will also be a hand drum singing competition with a “winner-take-all” cash prize. American Indian & Alaska Native artisans will be on site selling crafts, jewelry, and other handmade items.

November was first designated as National American Indian & Alaska Native Heritage Month by President George H.W. Bush in 1990. Throughout November, the diversity of American Indian tribes & Alaska Native corporations is celebrated and their place in American history is recognized. A proclamation recognizing the month in Gaithersburg will be issued by the Mayor & City Council at their regular meeting on Monday, October 21, 2019, at City Hall.
