The Gathering of Nations Powwow, annually one of the biggest events in Indian Country, will be a livestreamed live virtual powwow April 23-24. The event will include contest dancing, a variety of festive entertainment, the traders market, musical features from stage 49 and a dance party. Vendors scheduled to be in the 2020 Gathering of Nations Powwow will once again be featured, highlighted and promoted during the live virtual event.
The schedule for April 24 includes a “Special Farewell to Miss Indian World Cheyenne Kippenberger,” the first Seminole Tribe member to serve as Miss Indian World. Kippenberger, a former Miss Florida Seminole, won the Miss Indian World Pageant in April 2019. She agreed to serve for a second year when the pandemic forced the cancelation of the 2020 pageant.
“She graciously accepted to hold the title for a second year and has done an amazing job,” the pageant’s website stated in an announcement.
The 2021 pageant has been cancelled, but will be held in 2022, according to the website.
