The organizing committee for A Gathering of People, Wind and Water, a Native art market and cultural celebration, are proud to announce they are reorganizing as Native POP: People of the Plains, a Gathering of Arts and Culture. This year marks the fourth year for the free and family-friendly annual event at Main Street Square in the heart of downtown Rapid City, South Dakota on the third weekend of July.

Native POP is a one-day, juried Native American fine art show featuring original work by established and emerging Native visual artists with a focus on Great Plains culture. Native POP also features top Native performing artists as well as cultural demonstrations by tribal members such as regalia making, storytelling, and flute making. Native POP will hold a ticketed artist awards reception with $17,000 in awards held on the Friday evening before the show.  This year Native POP will take place on July 15-16, 2016.
