2020 Tennessee PowWow Canceled over Virus Concerns

To: All School Administrators, Media, Sponsors and General Public
From: Ray Emanuel, Executive Director, NAIA

To protect the health and safety of participants and guests, the 39 th Annual Tennessee Indian Education Pow Wow has been canceled. The Pow Wow is one of the largest east of the Mississippi, and celebrates Native arts, music, dance, food and culture. It draws upward of 18,000 attendees annually.

It is the hope of the board of directors of The Native American Indian Association of Tennessee, our staff of volunteers, our loyal sponsors, the Native dancers, merchants, musicians, storytellers, food vendors and all that have helped us make this event an annual celebration on Native American culture, that 2021 will be the most successful POW WOW of our 39 years.
