Tribally owned by the Yakama Nation. Legends Casino Hotel. Located in Toppenish, WA. Took over the Yakima Valley Sundome. May 17th to the 19th, 2024. With its pow wow and stick games.

This was Due to Legends Casino Hotel having some construction going on. And is expanding on the property. Now the move is only for this year of 2024.

Many people traveled far and near. To enjoy the Legends Casino Pow Wow and Stick Games. I wasn't able to attend all three days of the pow wow. Most pow wow take place over a weekend. But the website has a YouTube Channel. So I was a able to at least stream the pow wow online.
