This is a collection of promotional materials, newspaper clippings, and papers from 1923-1972 regarding the Inter-Tribal Ceremonial
that takes place annually in Gallup, New Mexico. Materials include correspondence, handbills, invitations, a post card, premium
lists, press releases, and programs.
The Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial is a yearly celebration in Gallup, NM which features parades, powows, rodeos and
much more. The Ceremonial began in 1921 as a coming together of Native Americans for the purpose of sharing their culture,
friendship and to see family. As the Ceremonial developed, tourists came to share in these events and the traders saw an opportunity
to expand Ceremonial by including the opportunity to buy native American arts, such as pottery, rugs, jewelry and carvings.
Many books will credit much art with winning a prize at Ceremonial. There was a sense of celebration and sharing that was
the core of Ceremonial.
