Cancellation of Annual Honoring Traditions Powwow

Annual Honoring Traditions Powwow
Pala Band of Mission Indians

Pala, CA – The Pala Band of Mission Indians and the Cupa Cultural Center announces the cancellation of the Annual Honoring Traditions Gathering and Pow Wow.

Since 2008, Pala’s Cupa Cultural Center has organized the powwow on behalf of the Pala community, and their efforts led to nationwide recognition of the event. The Honoring Traditions Powwow has drawn participants from all over the United States and Canada, and we have been honored to welcome dancers, community members, vendors, spectators, and honored guests to the Pala Reservation.

Over the years, thousands of dancers have competed and displayed their talents across a spectrum of categories, from jingle and fancy to traditional, grass, and chicken. It has been a pleasure to have visitors from all over the country and from so many different cultures and communities come to Pala.

We would like to thank all of the dancers and their families for coming to Pala and participating over the years, as well as all the vendors, spectators, and guests. We also recognize the vital contributions of our emcees, arena directors, and scorekeepers.

Finally, we would also like to recognize the work of the Cupa Cultural Center staff in organizing and overseeing the Honoring Traditions Gathering & Powwow over the years, and thank the people of Pala for their support.
