September 4,2016 The 46th annual Barona Powwow continues today at the Barona sports park, located on the Barona reservation in Lakeside.

View our video (top left) of Saturday night’s grand entry procession featuring NativeAmerican dancers in full regalia from tribes across the nation, and a second video (below) of a victory song honoring all warriors including our military and veterans.

 Powwows aim to preserve Native American cultural traditions for future generations.  Barona’s powwow attracts triba

l dancers and drummers from across the nation, as they compete for prizes. (Admission for spectators is free). You can also shop for Native American arts and craft items at vendor booths, and purchase food such as Indian fry bread.
