the Delaware Nation's main lodgehouse was in Coshocton where I lived most of my life.
the Delaware have an annual Tribal Gathering there.
They have Speakers , Flint Knapping Demonstrations and other activities and it's always an interesting weekend

I used to attend Pow Wows in CT and need to check into the CA gatherings. It's a powerful scene, lots of dancing, amazing tribal costumes and drums. Travelling the southwest through reservations a few times is an eye opener and Ive been lucky enough to cross paths with and interact with a few different tribes and learned a ton from them. I love to find handmade Native jewelry, have a Kokopelli key chain purchased at a Hopi reservation a few years ago.

I was a hospice nurse who served the Native American tribes in NM.

The largest PowWow is held in Albuquerque every year in the summer.

Norm (terrapin trailways fame) would produce their posters.

Right on for helping them..I'm happy to see the health issues of Native Americans come to light, SEVA being a local organization that is helping with the diabetes situation. I dated a lady who belongs to a SF organization that is researching TB in southwestern tribes, too, I guess it's been a threat there.

I lived in CT near a town that had a one man reservation...he was the sole one left and had a piece of land and a huge teepee. I thought that was pretty cool but local yahoos would drive by and throw beer bottles at his home on Sat. nights for kicks. Damn savages.

A few years back, I went to Indian market in Santa Fe... It's held in August, tribes come from all over. A huge celebration that includes art, jewelry and pottery vendors, pow wows on street corners, music, poetry & dance festival, etc. A beautiful opportunity also to visit the amazing Acoma Pueblo, (an active pueblo located on top of a Mesa), Bandalier National Monument, (ancient Anasazi cliff dwellings), etc. One of the best trips of my life!
