In Pictures: Gathering of Nations 2022

It was worth the wait.

After two years of not celebrating in person, thousands of dancers filled the floor of Tingley Coliseum during the 2022 version of Gathering of Nations last weekend.

Representatives of more than 560 Native American tribes from around the United States and more than 200 Indigenous tribes from Canada attended the powwow.

The three-day event kicked off April 28 with the Miss Indian World competition.

Tashina Red Hawk, 18, a member of the Sicangu Lakota tribe from Rosebud, South Dakota, took home the crown.

Gathering of Nations also featured Native American singing and dancing competitions, a horse and rider regalia parade, contemporary live music and entertainment, enticing food and a traders’ market offering fine art, crafts, clothing and jewelry.
