2021 Update

We are saddened to announce the 2021 Nesika Illahee Pow-Wow has been cancelled due to ongoing concerns with the Covid-19 pandemic.

You can join us on our 2021 Nesika Illahee Pow-Wow group on Facebook to participate in a virtual Pow-Wow! Please read the announcements on the group page for more information.

The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians hosts and invites all to come join & celebrate our annual Nesika Illahee Pow-Wow.  Our celebration takes place in the heart of the Siletz reservation in the town of Siletz, Oregon.  Every summer during the second weekend in August, Native & Non-Native people from all over the United States & further gather here to take part in our annual Nesika Illahee Pow-Wow.

For three days our community, situated on the central Oregon coast is transformed. On display is traditional dancing, drumming, and singing from all over Indigenous America and further.  Our gathering has an array of vendors that represents the many facets of Indigenous American Arts, Crafts and Cuisine. The Pauline Ricks Memorial Pow-Wow grounds on Government Hill becomes the beating heart of our community.

We hope you are able to come experience our Nesika Illahee Pow-Wow with us.
