This encampment powwow originally ran from 1989-2000. It is now returning for the 4th weekend in August 2021. The United Peoples Powwow and Cultural Rendezvous involves the entire Missoula ethnic community centered around a Native American Celebration.

In addition to the powwow, plan on exhibits, food and cultural presentations from many diverse world cultures which now make Missoula home. The popular and historic Mountain Man Encampment and museum exhibits will again demonstrate period living and skills from the 1800s and early 1900s.

So put the 4th weekend of August 2021 on your powwow calendar now. This enjoyable event at Fort Missoula promises to be bigger and better than twenty years ago. Come celebrate with us and experience a most unique and memorable powwow extravaganza.

Interested in volunteering? Fill out this quick form and we'll be in contact when planning meetings start up again!
