Event Details

One of the best ways to experience Native American culture is at a Pow wow. Pow wows are the Native American people’s way of coming together to dance, sing, visit, share handmade crafts, make new friendships, and renew old ones.

Dancing and singing have been a very important part of Native American culture. As various tribes came together, they would share songs and dances with one another. Many songs today are sung in “vocables” with no words although there are still newly composed or revivals of old songs that are sung in Native American Languages. “Vocables” were used to replace the words of old songs so that singers from different tribes could join. The songs heard at a pow wow are reminders to the Indian people of their old ways and rich heritage and still hold special meaning to those that know them.
