Redbird’s Children of Many Colors Powwow

July 20, 2011

Red Bird’s Vision is promoting the awareness and celebration of indigenous cultures and people and creating a sustainable future

This year marked the Powwow’s 11th year where Native Americans and non-Native American people gather to celebrate the traditional dances, songs, music, food, and art of the Native American culture.   Everyone was invited to attend this free event and many camped out the entire weekend. This was my first time ever attending a powwow.  I was so excited to learn about America’s native people and did not know what to expect.  I felt like I would be crashing a party or had a crazy thought will they will bring me up to the stage to dance.  I enjoyed my first powwow,  spending $5, and I encourage others to learn about cultures of those that have lived here before us.

Powwow begins with a grand entry, opening the powwow, followed by a prayer

Head dancers lead other dancers in the grand entry

it is beautiful to see children engaged in their culture and participating

dancers are in a circle symbolizing wholeness; no beginning, no end
