Taos Pueblo Powwow renews a beloved tradition

After hiatus last year, event returns strong as ever

Posted

After a break last year, the Taos Pueblo Powwow renewed its three decade-plus tradition with a colorful well attended first Grand Entry Friday evening (July 12).

The event, conducted on grounds set aside near the Taos Pueblo tribal buffalo pasture, attracts dancers and drum groups from all over the country for three days of intertribal celebration. Additional Grand Entries are planned Saturday (July 13) at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., with the last on Sunday (July 14) at 1 p.m. Entry fees are charged, plenty of parking is available.

The powwow is a separate event from the traditional ceremonies conducted as part of the tribal religion. It is also not conducted at the pueblo itself but in an area to the north bordering the community of El Prado. To get there, head north on Paseo del Pueblo Norte and turn right at Ben Romero Road, just past the Overland Sheepskin Compound. Follow the road to the end where it leads to the powwow grounds.
