The word Powwow is derived from the Narragansett word for a holy man. Some non-Indian people use the word to describe any meeting of Indian people. But that is not how Native people use it.

Many elements in modern powwows come from warrior and men's society practices among various tribes. Other activities, like grand entry, originated within the Wild West shows and rodeos in which some of our ancestors participated.

That depends on the individual. Some folks go as often as their work schedule and finances permit. Others never go at all. Not all Indians dance.


By the way, please don't call the sacred pipe a peace pipe. It's like calling the eucharist an hors d'oeuvre.
