Pow Wow Weekend Planner
The rhythm. The pulse of the drum reverberating on Mother Earth, tickling your feet through your moccasins. The circle of singers – some in their regalia – each pinching at that protrusion on their neck to give them that high pitch, find themselves instinctively grinning now and again. It’s the hour that prompts the smile – an ancient smirk. Like the dancers, the singers revel in these cherished moments. This is pow wow country, and here’s your pow wow list for this weekend.
