The Gathering of Nations
The Gathering of Nations takes place in New Mexico from April 28 – 30. It’s an event dedicated to the sharing of culture between indigenous peoples, over 3,000 in fact, who hail from over 500 tribes in Canada and the United States.
“The greatest thing about the Gathering of Nations is the respect that is shown to all Native people of the world,” says Flint Carney.
