How would you describe a powwow to someone who has never been to one before?

It's anytime 2 or more NDNs get together to share a beat, and maybe a step.

A "Feast" For the Eyes, As It Is Truly A Wonderful Thing To Be Able To "See".

Well that's how I would Describe A PowWow, And I Could Only Watch On TV, Sadly:((

Ooops Sorry...Sometimes my Irish Translation to English gets a bit Muddled .

I Did Not Or Do Not Mean "That I want To (Eat) in any Meaning, Anybody at the PowWows" I/We use the Word/Term (Feast For the Eyes) As a way of saying "Seeing Something..Wonderful, Beautiful, Magnificent, etc etc" ..And Yes!...We do also use this Term/Words for saying "A Fine Looking Man/A Fine Looking Women" etc...But it would be said as "A Feast Of A Man/Woman" Just to Clear Up "What Feast I Was Referring Too" Lol.

The best place to see old friends, make new ones, where there is always something to eat, to browse, to dance and sing. To check out those drummers when you are dancing, to check out the backup singers when they are singing.

Smile Heart and Soul of the People

I would describe a Pow-wow as being the Heartbeat and Soul of the People who participate and attend a Pow-wow and its a a very Spiritual Experience also a celebration of the Peoples Culture and a learning experience for those not of Native American ancestry or Heritage.

first you have to tell them how traditional the dances are? Then you show them, one of the oldest traditional interactive dances...


You, put one foot in, shake it like that.

You, put your odder fuut in, and twist it all about.

And explain....that's what it's all about!!....


Do this, and you will never go wrong....

Oh my, ummm, hard question. I quit going to dances and powwows after the husband went to prison, but my sister is on headstaff (alot) and I have recently consented to being dragged along to benefit dances and powwows. I even went to an Oakerhater memorial dance in Watonga by myself.

If my sister Nonie is on headstaff, I will be dancing with her, every time.

Other than that, I usually just sit and fringe or even just kick back at the camp and don't go to the arbor, even to watch. Every once in awhile, the husband used to make me go the 49 contest and I'd sing with the northern groups, if there were any. lol
