Julyamsh Powwow 

When: Fri., July 20, Sat., July 21 and Sun., July 22 2018
Price: $10
Local tribes come together from all across the Inland Northwest and beyond for annual, traditional celebrations held during this summer’s Coeur d’Alene Tribal Encampment and Julyamsh Powwow. It runs over the course of three days, with performers competing to win over $135,000 in cash prizes in events such as traditional dancing and drumming. A memorial dance kicks off the social gathering at 6 pm on Thursday, July 20. Grand Entries, once called victory dances, are set for Friday at 7 pm, Saturday at 1 and 7 pm, and Sunday at 1 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of their tribal affiliation, as are, according to the event website, “non-Indians.” Organizers ask guests to remember that the event is not a tourist attraction, but rather a space to respectfully learn about and enjoy traditional Native American ceremonies and culture.
