SacredSprings 1

On Nov. 17-18, the sounds of Native American drums will lead visitors to “experience Mother Earth’s heartbeat” at the Sacred Springs Powwow in San Marcos near the headwaters of the San Marcos River. The event expects to feature more than 100 dancers in vibrant regalia along with Native American history presentations. Taste favorite dishes like fry bread, and shop for handmade goods. The event is produced by the Indigenous Cultures Institute—a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the culture, arts, and traditions of distinct indigenous groups originally from South Texas and northeastern Mexico that are collectively known as Coahuiltecans.
