The annual Sacred Springs Powwow is held by Indigenous Cultures Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the research and preservation of the culture, arts, traditions, ceremonies, and languages of the population collectively known as Coahuiltecans.
San Marcos first experienced a powwow in 1995 when the Lucky Tomblin family brought Kiowa and other indigenous people to the area. The Sacred Springs Powwow is conducted in honor of the Tomblin Family.
Parking will be available in the parking lots on both sides of Bobcat Stadium.
There will be signs for shuttle pick-up points at the covered waiting area of both parking lots. The shuttles will run continuously from 9:30 until 6:30.
