PALA, CA  – The singing, dancing and drum playing has made its way back to the Cupa Cultural Center for the 3rd Annual “Honoring Traditions” Pow Wow, hosted by the Pala Band of Mission Indians.   

This Pow Wow will feature dance contests, a shinny exhibition, bird singing, dancing contests, host drums and arts and crafts and food booths.  Prizes for contests will be from $50 to $1,000 for a total of almost $20,000.
