Pow- Wows

Spring is coming and so is the Pow Wow season. Young and old, full blood and mixed blood alike will be gathering. Traditions continue in the honor of cultures and our fathers. Check out http://www.powwows.com for a Pow-Wow near you.

Take your children. They will be fascinated and it will hopefully ignite a desire in them to understand the culture of the Host peoples of this land.

It is a time for singing, dancing, connecting and learning. It’s a time to step out of our boxes, shed the everyday that lives in us all. In a world where traditions get lost for the next new thing, and honor and place get misunderstood for beliefs of entitlement and selfishness. Pow-Wows are community, connecting to God and honoring this earth that bares the weight of all we do.

So do yourself a favor. Find a Pow-Wow grab your family and friends, check it out. You never know…you might like it !, and you may connect in way you never thought you’d understand. “Mitakuye Oyasin”, we are all related.
