The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians announced the cancellation of the 2020 San Manuel Pow Wow.
The annual event is known as the largest powwow in California that draws in crowds from all over Southern California and competitors from across the nation. The San Manuel Powwow Committee issued the following statement:
“It is with a heavy heart that the Powwow Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 San Manuel Powwow. We feel this is the best and most responsible decision, as we want to protect the health and safety of our tribe and our guests who travel from throughout North America for the annual event. We look forward to hosting native dancers, drum groups, vendors, spectators and honored guests to celebrate the very best of Indian Country in 2021. We will announce the dates for the 2021 San Manuel Powwow soon.”
