Gathering of Nations

The Gathering of Nations Pow Wow is coming up this weekend. We will not be able to make it this year, but I wanted to mention it in case anyone has a day this weekend free and has never been. It is the most amazing, powerful experience. We planned our vacation a few years ago, around the date of the Pow Wow, so we could spend a whole day there. It is just such a wonderful experience and so hard to describe in words. You really have to experience it.

You can buy tickets at the door, although there is always a line, no matter what time you show up. Here are the details:

April 23-25, 2009
University of New Mexico Arena ("The Pit")
Avenida Cesar Chavez Blvd. SE (Hwy. 25, exit #223)
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

I will say it is crowded and can be loud. We found it best to get there early, claim our seats and spend most of the time sitting and watching, too hard to get up and walk around the crowds.

Simply amazing. I wish we could be there this year.
