FIHA’s 55th Anniversary Powwow and Annual Meeting are CANCELLED!!

It is with great sadness that we announce we must cancel the 55th annual FIHA powwow. We struggled with making the decision, and had been working closely with the county to make sure we were working within their guidelines. We have been discussing different ways to proceed and we are now looking at the possibility of rescheduling later in the year, if at all possible. So, please watch our page for any new updates.
To anyone who has pre-purchased tickets or made RV reservations, you will have the option to be reimbursed or to have credit applied to the next powwow. We will send out emails in the coming weeks.
To our amazing Vendors- we will be contacting you individually sometime this week, after the board meets.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. Please, stay safe.

FIHA Plans Thunder on the Beach


FIHA was approached by Dona, from TOB, late last year about taking over her well established powwow.  We had a vote and decided to take over for her, so that Florida would not lose another powwow.

Please, make sure you come out and support Thunder on the Beach, February 15-17, 2019 at the Indian River County Fairgrounds.

You can purchase advance tickets and reserve camping here: Reserve Now!
