In 1930, the first Southwest All-Indian Pow-Wow came to Flagstaff. This event, centered around the Fourth of July, featured rodeos, parades, authentic ceremonials, and the sale of arts and crafts. It quickly became an occasion for celebration and attracted members of tribes from all over America. It was Flagstaff's primary festival for many years, but the size of the crowds became unmanageable for Flagstaff residents. In 1980 Flagstaff decided to cancel the Pow-Wow permanently. This collection of historic powwow programs captures many of the images and stories behind this old tradition.
