Over a 1,000 dancers more than 25 drums. Not trying to be a wiseguy or anything. I would really like to know what everbody thinks is big or before its classified as big. Is it the size of the audience, size of the arbour. I know its all of these but when is it considered a big powwow.

    I THINK FOR ME WHAT A BIG POWWOW IS ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE THERE THAT I KNOW AND SOME FROM ALL OVER. BECAUSE MOST OF THE POWWOWS THAT I GO TO ARE SMALL WITH LIKE 5 OR 7 DRUMS AND SOME PEOPLE I KNOW.

    SO YEAH THAT KINDA DIDN'T MAKE TO MUCH SENS TO ME BUT IF ALL GET IT THAN YEAH

    Singerdad,

    I'm planning on going to the Gathering and the NMAI National Powwow too! Hopefully we can meet, along with Kakeeya! I understand that there MAY be a powwows.com membership reception at the NMAI National Powwow? We'll see!

    Plus, there are a lot of other powwows on my agenda this year. I hope to meet a lot of you on the powwow trail. I have plans to go to powwows in NC, NH, AZ and CO so far.

    Okay if they are going to move it to Hartford, will they keep the same dates or change them???

    I want to share an interesting information for you
    by Celena
    I'll start out by saying the usual things were good about this powwow: the drums and the dancers. It's them that ultimately make or break a powwow, for the most part. There were some really great specials and the dancers really put up a good competition. The weather was mild, and it was not unbearably...
