The 23th Annual Nez Perce Tamkaliks Celebration & Friendship Feast

This is a daily event, running from July 19, 2013 through July 21, 2013. Wallowa Band Nez Perce Trail Interpretive Center - 209 E. Second St., Wallowa, OR. More info: (541) 886-3101
For three days we have traditional Native American songs and dances. The traditional wear of the dancers is spectacular. Outside the dance area we have 25-35 concessionaires selling food, Native American crafts and other items. Along the river the participants camp during the pow wow, many setting up tee-pees.
On the last day of the festival we have the friendship feast. The Native American community provides salmon, deer and elk, a local rancher provides buffalo and locals bring pot luck dishes.
