43rd Annual Indian Fair Days and Pow Wow

July 23, 2013 

The 43rd Annual Indian Fair Days and Pow Wow will be held Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4 at the North fork Recreation Center, 33507 Road 230.

North Fork, the home to many Native Americans, including the Mono tribe, will be celebrating its rich tribal history with traditional dancing and other events.

The Mono people have lived in the Sierra Nevada and surrounding areas for centuries. Their long-lived tribal and family customs will be exhibited and demonstrated during the two day event.

In addition to members of the North Fork Mono tribe, members of other Mono tribes throughout the region as well as Miwok and Maidu tribal members also attend the event, each one showcasing their unique cultures.

In addition to traditional dancing, there will be food, native craft vendors, basket demonstrations and a hand game tournament.

The gates open at 9 a.m. with the grand entry taking place at noon on both Saturday, Aug. 3 and Sunday, Aug. 4.

The event is presented by the Sierra Mono Indian Museum in North Fork, one of the few tribally owned and operated museums in the country. The museum houses an impressive display of tribal art and cultural artifacts as well as exhibits showcasing the diverse wildlife in the area.

Tickets cost $2 per person prior to the event or $5 at the gate. Children 12 years old and under are free.
