Echoes of a Proud Nation Pow Wow

A contemporary Pow Wow is a social event for everyone, with Native American dancing, singing, food and crafts.  Originally a Powwow, or “celebration” as it was called in the old days, was held in the spring to welcome the new beginnings of life. Often different tribal nations would come together for the occasion. During these general meetings the Native American Indians would settle arguments between different groups, form alliances, and trade with one another. It was also a time for families to hold naming and honoring ceremonies. The original Pow Wows often were of religious significance and therefore consisted of different religious songs and dances.

All are invited, whether you’re a Native American or just interested in Native American cultures.
