WHAT IS A POWWOW?

A powwow is a Native American gathering, a social event when both native and non-native people gather together for druming, dancing, singing, shopping from arts and crafts vendors, seeing old friends and making new friends. Powwow Time is a social event that often includes special honorings, give-aways, memorials, fundraising, games, special dance exhibitions and social dances, like the Potato Dance or the Switch Dance. Powwows are either competition (dancers compete in several categories for prize money) or traditional (no competition dancing). Powwow Time keeps many Native American traditions alive and also provides an exciting and informative environment for non-native people to experience first hand about American Indian culture.

NATIVE AMERICAN POWWOWS & INDIGENOUS RELATED TOPICS

Included here is a brief History and Description of a powwow, basic description of powwow Dancers, Drums and Songs as well as basic Etiquette. The powwow listings are based on submissions made to this site so in no way is the Powwow Calendar a complete listing of all powwows nor do I necessarily know when and where all powwows happen. The Powwow Power calendar listings are a free service posted by visitors to this site.

This site is a culmination of my experiences on a powwow committee, attending powwows, being a powwow vendor, my photography and art, college research paper and input from Native American friends. I do not proclaim to be an expert on the subject but I am making an effort to present general, useful information on the subject that may be of assistance to anyone seeking powwow basics, especially to those who may have never been to a Native American powwow. Hopefully the information here will be constructive and helpful.

Support the Free Powwow Calendar Listing Service by making a purchase from Native Art Gift Shop. All orders will receive a packet of complimentary white sage. As a visitor, feel free to fill out the Contact Form or send an email to becky@powwow-power.com. If you are interested in advertising your powwow or business on this site or in an upcoming newsletter, use the contact form or call for additional info. Thank you for visiting Powwow Power, Becky Olvera Schultz.
