WHAT: 2nd Annual Marin Powwow, Free Admission
WHEN: March 17, 2024, 11am-8pm
WHERE: Terra Linda High School in the new Gym, 320 Nova Albion Way, San Rafael, CA 94903
WHO: Hosted by Marin American Indian Alliance & Sponsored by Marin Community Foundation and County of Marin. https://marinamericanindianalliance.org
All are welcome to the 2nd Annual Marin Powwow as we join in celebration of the Indigenous communities that live and work in Marin on Coast Miwok land.  Since 1968 the Marin American Indian Alliance (MAIA) has been a place where Indigenous people get together to share traditions, songs, dances and prayer so we are excited to have this opportunity to bring the community together in this good way.  Between all the various Native Nations represented in the Bay Area there is a wide variety of traditions about welcoming the springtime, but we can all agree that getting together to sing and dance after the challenges of winter is an important and welcome celebration.
