The Gathering of Nations PowWow is a two-day and night experience where people, both Indian and non-Indian, can come and, for a short while, enter into a world where dance and song can enlighten the mind and fill the heart with happiness.

Held annually at the University of New Mexico "The Pit" in Albuquerque, The Gathering of Nations PowWow starts off Saturday evening with the Grand Entry during which a young Native American Woman will be crowned Miss Indian World.  She will represent all of Native America and Indigenous people as a cultural goodwill ambassador.
