The fifth annual Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirit Powwow takes place in San Francisco, California, on Saturday.

Organizers are welcoming Native youth as head dancers for the first time. Arianna Antone-Ramirez (Tohono O'odham) and Raziel Goodface (Lower Brule Sioux) will join the three adult head dancers at the event.

“The reintegration of Two-Spirit people into the broader Native community is part of our mission, so this is an important step," powwow chair Roger Kuhn, a member of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, said in a a press release.

The powwow is being held from 10am to 10pm at the Herbst Pavilion at Fort Mason.
