Every August, you’ll find the lively Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial, one of the City and State’s oldest events. This annual event started in 1922 and showcases diverse intertribal culture, performances, and art in both traditional and contemporary presentations. Thousands of people come together in Red Rock Park for a celebration of Native American and Indian heritage and empowerment through songs, Pow-wow dances, pageants, rodeos, artisan markets, and more.
Throughout the summer, experience the authentic traditional dances from area tribes outside the Gallup Cultural Center. These interactive performances feature traditional instruments, singing, and dancing as well as an educational aspect as participants share explanations regarding the cultural traditions that surround these dances.
