I actually spent my first day in Baltimore at the 2006 pow-wow... so when the one year anniversary came up, I decided to pay a visit.
The Intertribal Pow-wow is a rather low key event held in a feild behind a walmart down on the waterfront.  Its not exactly tourist town but its an interesting peek into the Bawlmerese underworld.  It is a day when various different groups from around town get together, listen to local music and play nice.  The Hippies and Vegans hug trees and spin in fields... The Bikers hang out at the entrance, showing off their new rides... The lushes spill wine and happily greet every visitor...  The strippers pole dance in tutus and bikinis on the water front while children pick flowers... The Scenesters stand back and look unimpressed by everyone but the bands... The goths dance madly at the electronic stage with their devlin sticks and sashes... And the stoners slip down the banks to find a little zen... But every plays nice. 
Its just a place to slip away and be whoever you are without persecution.  If you happen to be in Baltimore in Late April... ask around and check it out for yourself...  You never know what you'll see.
