Nashville - For the past 30 years, Nashville Tennessee has played host to the Native American Indian Association of Tennessee (NAIA) Pow Wow and Fall Festival
Long Hunter State Park has hosted the event for the last several years. The annual powwow sees tribal people attending from across the U.S. and Canada. Members of the Ojibwa, Navajo, Iroquois, Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Micmac, Kickapoo, and Ho-Chunk are regular attendees.
Visitors will be treated to a colorful show that spotlights not only beautiful traditional dress, but also mesmerizing and graceful dances. Drum circles are also a staple at the powwow.
If you are interested in trying authentic tribal food, you can find that too. The fry bread and hominy never disappoint. If you are are looking to do some shopping, you will find many booths spotlighting various artisan crafts such as flutes, jewelry and bows.
