#PowwowWednesday: The Cabazon Indio Inter-Tribal Powwow 2012

This past weekend, the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians hosted the Cabazon Indio Powwow XXX in Indio, California. With 65 participating tribes, the annual event was packed with more than 450 dancers and 6,000 attendees.

We spotted the powwow on Indian Country Today and found this fantastic clip on YouTube of the MNX Crew providing an inter-tribal dance song:

Over on mydesert.com we came across a beautiful photo set of the powwow’s grand entry. Here are a few of the vibrant moments caputured by photographer Crystal Chatham:
