Before yesterday I had never attended a Pow Wow and didn’t realize what I had been missing. It was so exciting and beautiful to watch and hear the ceremony and dance. The costumes and/or ceremonial garb were amazing.
The drumming was quite moving in a deeply visceral way. If you have a chance to attend a Pow Wow I highly recommend it. I don’t think you’ll feel quite the same about life again.
The dancers had come from all over the country. They were from Oklahoma, New Mexico, North Dakota and Arizona. The Sioux, Navajo, Apache, Chippewa, Yavapai Nations among others were represented. It was an awesome day of fun and culture to be had and shared by all.
