Something For Everyone
Northwestern NV

There’s no better way to get to know Nevada’s cultural identity than the beloved Stewart Father’s Day Powwow, held in the heart of Nevada’s Capital City every summer. American Indian dancers, drummers, artists, and crafters from all across the northwestern Nevada region have gathered at the historic Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum every June since 1990 to celebrate their tribal heritage while honoring their ancestors. Throughout three days of festivities, get in on all kinds of dancing, arts and crafts, food, and stories from the hundreds of tribal representatives that are part of Stewart’s alumni.

The Stewart Indian School campus is home to one of Carson City’s biggest annual events every summer, featuring hundreds of dancers and drummers, dozens of makers, Indian tacos, Stewart Indian School alumni recognition, and more.

Until 1980, Nevada’s sole off-reservation American Indian boarding school was a mandatory chapter in the lives of thousands of adolescents. Hear their stories inside the Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum, which stands as a monument to the students’ strength and ability to carry their cultures forward. Outside the museum, hundreds of costumed dancers, drummers, and singers showcase their cultural pride through live, traditional performances. Shop dozens of vendors for Indian tacos and other delicious fare, plus art, jewelry, crafts, and more.

Admission to the Stewart Father’s Day Powwow is free, and prices vary with vendors. For more information, including complete details on weekend festivities, get in touch with the Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum by calling (775) 687-7608.
