The Indian Festival and Pow Wow at Stone Mountain Park is the largest Native American gathering in Georgia and has been named a Top 20 Event by the Southeastern Tourism Society.
There is SO much to photograph! The event showcases Native American culture through dance, music, authentic craft demonstrations, cooking traditions, storytelling, wildlife presentations and more.
Native Americans from across the U.S. and Central America compete in intertribal dance and drum competitions.
There are opportunities to learn about (and photograph) primitive skills such as flint-knapping, bow making, fire starting, open fire cooking and pottery. Crawl inside a tipi and other traditional native dwellings.
There is an East meets West Encampment comparing and contrasting the lifestyle of Southeastern and Plains Indians.
The costumes are amazing.
And of course there will be lots of Native American inspired arts and crafts for sale.
We will meet at the entrance gate at 9:45 a.m., so that we can be first in line to get in to the event.
Around 5 p.m. we will leave the park and those who are interested in continuing the fun will meet for dinner at a local Mexican restaurant (about five minutes from the park).
There is a $10 entry fee per car to enter the park, and tickets to the Pow Wow are $12 (plus tax).
