      4. Favorite summer activity--going to the powwow to watch the fancy shawl dancers. The riot of color, the athleticism, the grace, the smell of the grass...it's complete bliss, like walking into a rainbow.


      WOMEN'S FANCY SHAWL DANCE For centuries native peoples have gathered together and engaged in ceremonial and celebratory dance. Men’s Traditional Dance, Women’s Traditional Dance, Grass Dance…all are rooted in those days long ago but like much of American Indian culture, these roots are not simply history. Attend any powwow today and you can see these dances recreated by men, women and children in exhibition and competition as lush illustrations of “living history.”
