It’s that TIME once again. Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians and Coyote Valley Casino would like to invite you to our 22nd Annual BIG TIME Celebration. This year’s celebration will include Native Dancers, our 17th Annual Tom Ramos Memorial Stick Game Tournament, our traditional salmon feed, the Kid Zone and pool, KWNE/KMKX Radio Remote and MORE.
Big Time is a traditional California Native festival or gathering where Tribal Nations come together to share traditional dances and songs, have talking circles, eat traditional foods, make important decisions and pray together. It is a time when different dance families come together for 2 – 10 days to make their regalia and to make significant decisions about their families and the future. There is no direct English translation of the Indian word for these gatherings. Over time the term “Big Time” has been adopted, but the term is also translated to mean significant, decision-making, or major importance. The Pomo, Ohlone, Maidu, Miwok and other Tribal Nations of central and northern California have continued to have an annual Big Time.
Come join us and have a Great TIME at BIG TIME. Be sure to bring your whole family for this clean and sober traditional event.
