Indigenous Cultures Institute invites you to apply for a vendor’s booth at its 2016 Sacred Springs Powwow.  We are limiting the spaces to 40 (which includes food booths) plus 10 nonprofit booths.

This year we're continuing the Native Culture Tent located in the middle of the circle of vendors on the asphalt road turn-around area. Under a large tent, throughout the day, we'll have flute players, storytellers, dancers, children singing exhibitions, and much more. These presentations will be announced frequently at the Arena Tent and featured in new signage that points to the "Native Culture Tent".

PLEASE NOTE: You must bring weights to anchor your tents against the wind. We are NOT ALLOWED to make holes in the asphalt.
