Gourd, Exhibition, and Youth Pow Wow Dancers Registration 
The Indigenous Institute of the Americas invites you to join us for  Gourd Dance on Friday, March 31st, from 4 pm to 9 pm at the Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum. Our organization has several Gourd Dancers and Veterans on our planning committee, making this event a wonderful opportunity to reunite families and friends.

Our Youth Pow Wow begins Saturday Morning with Opening Ceremony and Grand Entry, Line up at 9:45 am, with 10:15 am start time.  Our competition will include tiny tots to young adults who are enrolled in any form of education post high school (up to age 25).  We have cash and prizes so it should be fun for everyone.  Youth pow wow contestants will receive community service credit hours for their time at the event. Please also let us know if they will come dressed out on Sunday for Exhibition dancing.  We believe our youth should get credit for their schools and future colleges to recognize their talents.  More details on Youth Pow Wow rules can be found at: https://iiamericas.org/youth-pow-wow/

This year, our event will not have an adult or golden years competition division but we welcome adult and youth dancers who would like to dress out and participate in demonstration dances, Inter-tribal, and social dances. As a nonprofit we do not pay our volunteers but can show our appreciation with a meal and free admission if you sign up before March 11th (this gives us time to mail you wristbands)   

This is not a Pow Wow appropriate for hobbyist dancers but it is open to the public and we welcome audience participation in the Inter-tribal dances. We ask that dancers who are hobbyist, contact our Pow Wow committee at iiamericas.org@gmail.com before coming dressed in regalia as we want to create an atmosphere that supports our Native people. We thank you for your consideration.

Youth  Dancer Tribal Affiliations - we do not require tribal enrollment for the pow wow, we  just want to document  the diversity of dancers. *
Each registered dancer and 2 family members will receive complimentary admission wristbands, good for the entire weekend. You must be registered by March 11 so that we can mail the wristbands to you. Unfortunately if you miss this deadline, you will need to pay your admission costs to get in.  Once registered inside the venue, we can give you free wristbands good for the rest of the weekend, so you can go in and out of the venue without paying.   Sorry no refunds by the committee.  Admission goes toward the Museum venue who have made major revisions to the property for our behalf. 
Address for mailing the wristbands: Wristbands good for all three days  *
For each youth dancers, please let us know your name, age and your dance style/division.
