Powwow Dancing

Native American powwow dancing includes a range of different dance styles for men and women in dance outfits, as well as intertribals and social dances where everyone can participate. Furthermore, a number of specials take place at each powwow; specials are certain ceremonious dances honoring a person and these specials are sponsored by the extended family. Today, powwows often focus on the dance and singing contests with large cash prizes, but the socials and specials are equally important during a powwow as they play an important part in the lives of Native American families.
