Pow-wow: A Gathering of Dance and Fellowship

Posted by Native America Editor on

Native Americans from diverse tribes and regions of the country have shared many stories about how Pow-wows continue their traditions and culture. The Pow-wow is a community gathering of dance and fellowship.

As many contributors note, these events allow Native Americans, sometimes from a singular tribe and sometimes from many different tribes, to assemble in celebration of their cultural heritage. Attending a Pow-wow allows people to share traditional foods, dance, song and craft across generations.
