            Not sure what's "traditional" about their attire. Never saw a fancy shawl dancer with fringed Ultrasuede leggings before.

                  I think its to keep the tourists from wandering across the sacred grounds and distrubing the sacred grass.

                    Life should not be measured by the number of things that we aquire on our journey but by the number of lives that we touch along that road.

                            THE ORDER FOR THE PRESERVATION OF INDIAN CULTURE

                            The public is cordially invited to attend and participate as we celebrate our 27th annual American Indian Pow Wow sponsored by The Order for the Preservation of Indian Culture (T.O.P.I.C.) to be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29 at Prowse Farm, 5 Blue Hill River Road, Canton, MA.

                            The grounds will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. with tribal dancing represented by many tribes, and narration from Chief One Bear Tremblay of the Chippewa Tribe, assisted by Paul Bullock (Whirling Thunder), Drums provided by Nipmuck Turtle Drum and Walking Bear Singers; circle time schedule: Saturday, June 28th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 29th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

                            The purpose of the Pow Wow is to bring people together to express the sense of community, the sense of oneness with each other and with the universe, this sense of sharing. It is something that the non-Indian can learn - - that we are all dependent on one another - - all living creatures have an obligation to one another.

                            The Pow Wow is also known as a dance, a doing or a traditional Indian gathering and has great meaning to the American Indians. These dances or gatherings have taken place for hundreds of years. Historically these gathering were held in the spring or summer. At this time people had a chance to get together with old friends, meeting new ones, exchanging ideas, trading, dancing, drumming and feasting. T.O.P.I.C. members are an active group, busy promoting the fellowship found in common love of the American Indian culture.

                            Refreshments will be sold and hand-crafted Indian jewelry, pottery, beadwork, weavings and many other crafts will be available for purchase. Special performances by Freddie Lee (Flutist), the Araica Family Singers, and Story Telling by Millie Noble. Admission is $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Children under age 6, free of charge. Parking is free and we have handicapped parking as well as handicapped restroom facilities. T.O.P.I.C. is a chartered non-profit, inter-tribal organization striving to bring about a better understand of American Indian life. Picture taking is welcome with only a few restrictions.

                            __________________________________________________ ________________
                            It doesn't sound much different from any other pow wow. It only last two days, they charge a little less, only $3. Got the vendors. Even talks about community, oneness, universe, etc. Even has some of the same rules. I guess they've been around for 27 years, must be doing something right. Even got a Charter, whatever that is. Free parking.
