Julyamsh is more than a powwow. It’s a celebration of American Indian culture – dancing, music and art. This year’s powwow features plenty of music and dancing. It also will feature the Painted Faces art show and auction, including works by some of the region’s best-known Indian artists. The works will be on exhibit at the Greyhound Park and Events Center in Post Falls before the auction, at 4 p.m. Saturday. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Shriners Hospital for Children in Spokane/Carolyn Lamberson, SR. More here.
Question: Have you ever attended the Julyamsh? Impression?
