It is your responsibility to know that once you purchase a ticket for the event, and unable to attend, sit together as a group, or any and all other issues that you may feel deserve a refund, you will not be given a refund. 

    Tickets are transferable, they may be gifted or given to another person/group.  To elevate any misunderstanding we are stating plainly, ALL SALES ARE FINAL/NO REFUNDS. In the rare event the Gathering of Nations events are cancelled, all ticket holders will receive an e-gift card voucher good for use at the next Gathering of Nations Event. 

    General Admission Single Day and Two-Day Wristbands grant you access to the Pow Wow Grounds at Expo NM. Your general admission grants access to Stage 49, Food Court, Indian Traders Market, Teepee Village, Horse Parade, and Tingley Coliseum (when access is permitted).

    Some of the facilities/buildings within the Powwow grounds have building capacities, should a building fill to capacity temporarily, you will not be granted access UNTIL the number of people in the building is reduced.  This happens rarely, however, you WILL eventually get in.   Large Video Screens are located throughout the Powwow Grounds and inside some facilities to view the Dancing and Singing inside Tingley Coliseum continuously throughout the event.

    VIP Wristband Admission and GON Dancer/Singer Wristbands WILL have access into Tingley Coliseum continuously through their designated Entry should the building fill to capacity. 

    If your wristband has been tightened or is damaged, please bring it to the event Box Office – Will Call Window, located near the entrance Gate at Expo NM where you can get a replacement band, HOWEVER, to prevent fraudulent wristband replacement you MUST prove your purchase, so bring ID, credit card of the original purchaser, and if paid cash, bring copy of your receipt of purchase. WE WILL NOT REPLACE LOST, STOLEN OR MISPLACED WRISTBANDS OR TICKETS.

    DO NOT PUT ON WRISTBANDS YOURSELF, ALLOW SECURITY TO ASSIT SO YOUR WRISTBAND IS PROPERLY PUT ON.
