Based upon the current social distancing guidelines, UCM is reimagining the Annual Trading Moon Pow Wow as a Native American Dance and Arts exhibition featuring the group Beyond the Circle. This will allow for a celebration of Native American arts through a staged presentation while maintaining social distance for participants and audience members. Individuals may register to attend as part of the limited capacity audience at UCM or may choose to watch the livestreaming of the event.
Tickets and parking for pre-registered guests are free for in-person attendees. Individuals/families that wish to attend the Trading Moon Dance and Arts exhibition and be part of the limited capacity audience, can register for tickets. Families should submit one registration and will be seated together.
Due to the revised program, this year's event will not have the Head Staff traditionally associated with the Trading Moon Pow Wow. Instead it will feature Beyond the Circle. Based out of Springfield, MO, Beyond the Circle represents the Navajo, Ottawa, Ojiwe, Apache, Lakota, and Cherokee tribes.

The Missouri Arts Council is the state agency dedicated—as public leader, partner, and catalyst—to broadening the growth, availability, and appreciation of the arts in Missouri and fostering the diversity, vitality, and excellence of Missouri’s communities, economy, and cultural heritage.
