Coushatta Tribe Announces 25th Annual Powwow

Coushatta Grand Hotel

KINDER, LA – The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana will host its 25th annual powwow in The Pavilion at Coushatta Casino Resort from June 10-11, 2022.

Coushatta’s annual powwow is one of the largest Native American gatherings in the southern U.S., where world champion Native American dancers and singers gather to compete for prizes in a family-friendly event. Hundreds of representatives from tribes across the U.S. and Canada come together each year to celebrate their culture with dance and drum contests. Handcrafted jewelry, beaded moccasins and colorful feathered regalia with intricate details adorn the dancers. Tribal drum groups compete and provide music and songs for the dance competitions. Exhibition dances and specialty dances showcase each age category during the event. 

A popular feature is the marketplace showcasing Native American food such as Indian frybread and Indian tacos, authentic Native American arts and crafts, handmade turquoise and silver jewelry, handmade beaded items, and Coushatta long-leaf pine needle baskets.
