A powwow is a social gathering held by many different Native American communities. It is a specific type of event for Native American people to meet and dance, sing, socialize and honor their cultures (Wikipedia).

The 48th Annual Dance for Mother Earth Powwow will be held this year on March 28th and 29th at Skyline High School (2552 N. Maple Rd., Ann Arbor 48103) from 10:30 A.M.-10:30 P.M. [The admission fee is usually about $10. Parking is free.]

This powwow is one of the largest in North America! There will be vendors, traditional music, dancing, and ceremonial outfits. You can also try some traditional food.

There are various categories of dancers (from children to adults) who are judged and the winners are announced on Sunday.

This is a great opportunity to experience locally the wonderful, rich culture of Native Americans! I hope you will go and learn more about these fascinating people.
