On Saturday the annual Sacred Springs Powwow took place all day at The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment in San Marcos.
The Sacred Springs Powwow is an event hosted by the Indigenous Cultures Institute and included a 32-foot tipi, White Shaman Panel (the rock art story of the creation of the Coahuiltecan people) presentations, Native American dancers, food tents and native art venders.
The event began with a blessing on the shores of Spring Lake and closed with a prayer.
Indigenous tribe members, families and people of all cultures came from far north and far south to enjoy the event.
Despite the rain and cold, the event went on as normal, spreading cultural knowledge and warmth through fun to all who attended.
