2018 Powwows & Events

We know lots of you prefer to shop for beads in person – and why wouldn’t you? It’s so much more fun to hold them, see the colors in different lighting and compare sizes/types. We’d love for you to join us at the following powwows and gatherings in Indian Country.

For additional information about any event, please contact the event organizers directly. Some events may charge entry fees.
