8 Year Old Peyton White Buffalo Wows The Crowd At Gathering of Nations

 As drums boomed and singers chanted, more than 3,000 Native Americans and indigenous dancers swayed and circled the floor of WisePies Arena, aka The Pit, in a visual display of bright colors, feathers, fur, fringe, beads, buckskins and bells.

The Grand Entry and Powwow Opening Ceremony for the 32nd annual Gathering of Nations on Friday featured dancers from 700 tribes across the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The world’s largest event of its kind, which continues today and tonight, includes dance competitions, drumming contests, the crowning of a new Miss Indian World, Native American musical performers and comedians, a cornucopia of Native American and Southwestern foods, and more than 800 Native American artists and artisans displaying and selling their paintings, sculptures, pottery, jewelry, clothing, textiles and more.

“This is a celebration of our culture, our heritage, our beautiful native ways as Indian people,” said Larry Yazzie, one of the event’s entertainment coordinators and master of ceremonies. “We are letting the world know we are still here, alive and well, and maintaining our traditions and passing them down from generation to generation.”
