Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits - Two Spirit Powwow Planning Committees
Two Spirit Powwow Planning Committees
Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits
Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) exists to restore and recover the role of Two-Spirit people within the American Indian/First Nations community by creating a forum for the spiritual, cultural and artistic expression of Two-Spirit people.
Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) is beginning preparations for their annual Two-Spirit Powwow, taking place in February 2019. The event draws some of the area’s top dancers for a day of fun and appreciation of the Native American Two-Spirit tradition.
BAAITS is seeking individuals interested in serving on powwow planning committees. Committees work on a wide variety of tasks in preparation for the event, including graphic design, ordering tshirts, dealing with media, purchasing items, event setup, and more.
All are welcome to serve on committees regardless of how you identify, and it is an inter-tribal event so it is a learning experience for everyone. Join a committee and learn what is involved with a powwow and some of the cultural norms that make these events so incredible.
Committees meet every two weeks on Tuesdays, and begin meeting weekly as February draws closer.
