The word Powwow comes from the Algonquian term "pau-wau" or "pauau", which referred to a gathering of medicine men and/or spiritual leaders. However in contemporary times this festive event signifies a way to preserve history, celebrate culture and connect with the community through vibrant traditional song and dance. From hoop dancing, intertribal rhythmic drumming, native food and centuries old crafts this event is sure to be a unique experience. You are encouraged to make this a family affair and use this event as a catalyst to expose your children to part of the Thanksgiving tradition often left out of secular culture.
