2013 Stewart Father's Day Powwow photo



JUNE 13 – 15, 2014    Carson City, Nevada

It was another great Father's Day Powwow at the former Stewart Indian School in Carson City, Nevada! This event is geared to generate support and funding for the establishment of the Stewart Indian Cultural Center. The intent of the Cultural Center is to preserve the history and memorabilia of the school which closed in 1980 after 90 years of providing basic and vocational education and training for thousands of American Indian youth from Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico and other western states. Due to the significance of this school and its important historical contributions, the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is currently being maintained by the State of Nevada. During our event, visitors are able to experience first-hand the true history of the school by joining hundreds of alumni, American Indians and general public who come from near and far for the event which features competition American Indian dancing, American Indian arts, traditional food vendors and alumni reunion activities.
