Pow Wow by the Sea at IB Pier Plaza was a Two-Day Celebration of Life and the Summer Solstice and Payed Honored to Our Veterans. The Pow Wow also serve as a reminder of what the area's inhabitants and their culture looked like centuries ago.
The Pow Wow by the Sea, presented in conjunction with the city of Imperial Beach was held this past weekend, June 17th & 18th at the IB Pier Plaza’s grassy knoll, featuring authentic Native American crafts, jewelry, tasty treats, dancers, and a drum circle. The Pow Wow is organized by The Bridge and the Powwow by the Sea community board
The BRIDGE (InterTribal Youth) exists to prepare Native American students for a brighter future through hands-on life experiences that combine academics, adventure travel, health and wellness, cultural exploration and economic opportunities.
This two-day celebration of life and the summer solstice began with The American Indian Warrior Association Honor Color Guard bringing in the colors in the Grand Entry.
