Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits will hold its ninth annual powwow Saturday, February 8, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Fort Mason Festival Pavilion, 2 Marina Boulevard in San Francisco. Featured dancers will make their grand entry at noon. Organizers noted that a powwow is a traditional Native American event that gathers all tribes, as well as inviting non-Native guests, to learn more about Native cultures. Last year the event welcomed more than 5,000 people and a larger crowd is expected this year, according to a news release. The powwow features several hours of ceremonial honor dances, contest dances, and a drum contest. The release stated that all powwow dancers and drums are welcome. “This is a space for all of us to gather respectfully and celebrate Native traditions,” BAAITS board Chair Amelia Vigil stated. “Whether you are African American, Native American, white, gay, straight, transgender — whoever you are and wherever your roots originated, come with curiosity and kindness.”
