Annual Waterfront Powwow,

Vallejo, California, United States Vallejo, California, United States

  • About the event

    The Vallejo Annual Waterfront Powwow started out in 1997 with the hope that native families could not only find support and camaraderie that is unique to our culture but establish a positive cultural presence that overrides the negative stereotypes that still persist to this day. Since then we have watched families grow and this particular event has become literally a family reunion not only for specific families but also for the community. We are now a multigenerational organization that structures pride and care into this event and develop this into annual event that has grown from a one day to two day powwow with attendance up to 10,000+ people and the possibility of more as we continue to grow. This particular event is open to the public, is designed to educate and honors the people in a respectful and culturally relevant way while still empowering non native community members to come learn more than what is taught in schools and try something new and explore our art, food and dance as it still exists today. 

    Why should you sponsor?

    Sponsors have an opportunity to show support that goes beyond mainstream events and truly reach an audience that is unique to the american market and community. By showing an understanding of the native american community and the richness of the culture they bring to our very modern world it fosters a sense of community that shows respect to the heritage that first nations people have established since the founding of this great nation. Its also a great marketing tool and encourages overall health and wellness in any community you find powwows being held.

    7 Generations Intertribal Council is a rebranded organization and a recognized 501(c) 3 non profit charity program that was previously known as Vallejo Intertribal Council. 

    Formed in 1996 as a way to connect local native families in the greater San Francisco Bay Area in California to stay connected to cultural roots in the surrounding chaos. A unique intertribal identity was formed and allowed traditions to be passed on now to a third generation as we teach, drumming, dancing, foods, ceremonies, protocols and in general a healthy respect for our culture at large as well as educate non natives about traditional practices and what we consider to be respectful and in true honor to our heritage versus stereotypes perpetuated by Hollywood. 

    This is our mission and purpose in our adopted hometown of Vallejo, CA
