            Does someone have information on a pow-wow in D.C. this year? I haven't looked around on powwows.com, (maybe there is an old thread out there somewhere) maybe someone can direct me to a link.

            Just heard about it, would like to know more.

            Thanks.

                  In addition to the National Powwow, a public educational seminar will preceed the powwow titled, "ORIGINS OF THE POWWOW."

                  We are working on the presenters and speakers roster right now. All the head staff will be involved in addition to Indian historians, scholars and elders.

                  The Smithsonian Origins of the Powwow Seminar will take place Wednesday and Thursday, August 10 and 11, 2005.


                  Once we have the panels, times and presenters in place, I will make a new thread about the details!

                  __

                  ALSO...

                  ALL VETERAN's - regardless of ethnic background, will be eligible for discount admission to the "National Powwow!"

                  This is being done to recognize and highlight the real "Origins of the Powwow" which began as warrior dances!

                  Hopefully, other big contest powwow committees will follow this positive new trend (if they charge admission).

                  Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                                Tickets are for sale on ticketmaster.com but they ask for a NMAI code (or it could have been password), I think it has something to do with being a NMAI member. Can anyone help me out?
