At the annual Buffalo Bill Historical Center Plains Indian Museum Powwow, dancers, drum groups, and artists from Northern Plains tribes gather to celebrate their vibrant cultural traditions and histories.

Competitive dance categories include traditional, jingle dress, fancy, grass, team dancing, tiny tots, and chicken dance. Men, women, teens, and children compete in various age groups for more than $25,000 in prizes. The popular Learning Tipi of Lakota educator Gloria Goggles, from Fort Washakie, Wyoming, is a popular educational program that invites visitors to discover the traditions of powwow.

Visitors shop for authentic Indian jewelry, bead and quillwork, clothing, basketry, pottery, paintings, sculpture, and more at more than forty vendor booths, and enjoy fry bread and Indian taco vendors, as well as food and beverage concessions
