Black Hills Powwow 2013

RAPID CITY – Black Hills Powwow has been growing every year and Board president Stephen Yellowhawk expects this year’s powwow to be the largest in its 27 year history. The powwow plans to payout over $75,000 in prizes this year to dancers, singers and artists who are competing in their respectable categories.

“The Board of Directors for the Black Hills Powwow Association is pleased to have everything coming together nicely for the 2013 Powwow in October,” said Yellowhawk. “We are honored to have an excellent lineup of head dancers and drum groups, and we’re excited about the public’s response to our theme of “Come Dance With Us” for the 2013 powwow weekend.” We want to welcome everyone to come and enjoy the powwow.

The Black Hills Powwow has become one of the premiere American Indian events in the United States and Canada. Every year, hundreds of dancers, singers, and artisans, and thousands of spectators converge on Rapid City during Native American Day weekend in South Dakota to share in numerous multicultural events, including the championship powwow, He Sapa Style Show, fine arts show and competition, He Sapa Win pageant, day-long symposium for youth, hand games tournament, golf tournament and archery tournament. The entire purpose of the powwow weekend is to showcase the beauty of American Indian culture and history.

The 27th Annual Black Hills Powwow is set for October 11, 12, and 13, 2013, at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City.

The Black Hills Powwow Association is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and relies upon the assistance of volunteers and monetary contributions from business and organization partners from Rapid City, the Black Hills area and the Upper Great Plains region.
