What is a Pow Wow:
Originally the Pow Wow was held in the spring to celebrate the new beginning of life. It was a time for people to get together, sing, dance, renew old friendships and make new ones. The Pow Wow had a religious significance and were an opportunity for families to hold naming and honoring ceremonies.

Today Pow Wows, or celebrations, are very much a part of the lives of many American Indians. Pow Wows are a mixture of celebration, social gatherings and friendly dance competitions, shared by the " Generations" of people. But, as the sacred thread that runs through all life, there are sacred traditions to be found in this coming together of people.

There is a circle in most dances, representing the circle of unity, the circle of life. Dancers often follow the clockwise pattern of the sun." Drum & Song" are the heartbeat and the inspiration of Pow Wows. Some of the dress and ornaments, called regalia, signify special events or honors in a person`s life, special religious traditions or perhaps legends.

The Pow Wow brings the circle of people closer to their family, friends and their american culture.

Everyone is welcome at a Pow Wow regardless of the tribe.
