Mariposa Pow Wow

Mariposa Pow Wow
05/12/2018 - 05/13/2018
All Day

All are welcome at the 25th Annual Mariposa Pow Wow on May 12-13, 2018 at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds in Mariposa, California. Once a year the American Indian Council of Mariposa County (AICMC) – aka the Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation – organizes a traditional Native American celebration. To most people this celebration is known as the Mariposa Pow Wow but, to the Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation it is known as Chi-Tock-Non Kote-U-Pu – a drug-free, alcohol-free, smoke-free Spring Celebration.

The Mariposa Pow Wow is held each year on Mother’s Day weekend. The pow wow is important, not only as a celebration of our Native American culture, song and dance but also, more importantly, helps to fund the Nellie Tucker Scholarship. The Nellie Tucker scholarship, administered through the AICMC, provides funds for local Native students who are trying to further their education.
