WHAT IS A POWWOW?

A powwow is a Native American gathering, a social event when both native and non-native people gather together for drumming, dancing, singing, shopping from arts and crafts vendors, seeing old friends and making new friends. Read more…

Included here is a brief History and Description of a powwow, description of powwow Dancers, Drums and Songs as well as powwow Etiquette.

This site is a culmination of my experiences on a powwow committees, attending powwows, being a powwow vendor, my photography and art. Hopefully this information will be useful to anyone seeking powwow basics, especially those who may have never experienced a Native American powwow.

Support the Free Powwow Calendar Listings by making a purchase from Native Art Gift Shop. All orders will receive a packet of complimentary white sage.

Thank you for visiting Powwow Power,
Becky Olvera Schultz.
