ICTMN photographer Cliff Matias, set out to capture the rhythm and energy of dance in one of the most musical cities in the world, Brooklyn, New York.

At the 20th Annual Gateway to Nations Pow Wow, June 6-8, which was in BK, Natives and Non-Natives from every crevice of the city came to hear the drumming and watch the dancers’ colorful regalia as it flowed along with them.

The competition pow wow invited Fancy, Traditional, Grass, Chicken and Smoke dancers into “the arena,” where Matias lensed several of the winners. And, perhaps, you will see bits and pieces of the movements that granted each winner the top prize.
