START OF 100TH GALLUP INTER-TRIBAL INDIAN CEREMONIAL

@ Red Rock Park Convention Center (825 Outlaw Rd., Church Rock). Founded in 1922 and considered a New Mexico destination experience, the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial is one of the oldest continuous recognition 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.
