100th Anniversary of the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial
The Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Association, Inc. (GITICA), and the City of Gallup will hold the 100th anniversary of the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial as a mixture of in-person and virtual events. Scheduled events include: One World Beat (the theme of the event) – Native American & Indigenous Tribal Processions & Performance Showcases, Rodeo Events, Ceremonial Queen and Princess Pageants, Juried Art Show & Contest, Virtual Artisans Market, 5k Run/Walk, Parades, Powwow, Navajo Song & Dance, and Film Screenings.
“The Ceremonial” is hosted annually at Red Rock Park near Gallup, NM. Various citywide events are also being planned. Founded in 1922 and considered a New Mexico destination experience, the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial is one of the oldest continuous recognitions of Native American culture and heritage and known for attracting an international audience.
As it reaches its 100th anniversary, the event continues to evolve while enshrining the earliest ideas of creating opportunities by spotlighting Native American authenticity. This centennial milestone is a cumulation of tributes to the generational event caretakers and the ancestral and present day Native American tribal participants.
