Powwow for Hope


Powwow for Hope, the nation’s only known cancer awareness powwow, is a community event that honors loved ones who have battled or are fighting cancer by creating a space for healing and honor. Proceeds benefit the American Indian Cancer Foundation’s work to eliminate cancer burdens on American Indian families throughout Indian country. We imagine a world where cancer is no longer the leading cause of death for American Indians and Alaska Natives.

Proceeds from past events have allowed us to create and deliver culturally-relevant cancer prevention resources to more Tribal and urban communities, connect AI/AN cancer survivors and caregivers to healing and supportive services, and partner with more Tribes so we can change the outcome of cancer in our communities.


With your help we can enhance our services, develop a survivorship support program, deliver cancer care packages and provide education to more communities, provide more resources to those in need and build larger campaigns and initiatives to address the cancer inequities faced by our communities.
