Covid-19 Protocols

Our powwow is open to the general public this year. 

We’ll require masks, and will have them available for all present.  We strongly suggest KN-95 masks or better.


Please only eat outside. We will have seating for eating available at the Firehouse, close to the main entrance.
Please keep in mind the health of our community elders and children—they are being affected more by the new covid variant, RSV, and the flu.


We are offering a virtual live stream for those who cannot be there in person.

We encourage community members who are experiencing cold-like or flu-like symptoms to join us from the comfort of your home.  You can always join us in person next year or at other BAAITS events throughout this year.



We are a volunteer-run powwow

Thank You Sponsors and Partners !
