The beauty of Denver March Powwow

Colorado is home to one of the biggest Native American powwows in the country. The powwow, Denver March, started Friday and ends Sunday. Today was my first time attending. I’ve been to my share of powwows – large and small – and Denver March is right up there in terms of size and beauty.

Kudos to organizers for hosting the powwow. The Denver Coliseum is easy to find and easy to navigate.

The cost is $7 a day, or $20 for a three-day pass. Kids under 6 get in free. The powwow isn’t just for Native Americans. The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend.

Thousands of people regularly attend the powwow, in its 40th year. Here are some photos.
