In the words of Micheal Parfit….

“Powwows today are far more than a salute to the past. They’re not shows. They’re not entertainment. Most Indians call them celebrations. Nurtured during the past century by Plains Indians, today’s powwow is part family reunion, part cultural revival, part dance contest – and all shimmering spectacle.”

NGM- June, 1994.
