This gallery will explore photographically some of the peoples of the First Nations showing visually as much as possible about their traditional way of life. Emphasis is on their traditional pow-wow dances and their ceremonial dress. Cultures around the world are a fascinating subject at all levels. In my travels the indigenous people of our planet are colorful and rich with legend. The North American tribal groups are truly one of the most colorful and photogenic, Pow Wows are a mixture of sights and sounds. Drummers and singers strike the rhythm and the dancers whirl in their colorful ceremonial dress. I invite you to visit my Pow Wow Gallery and then go to see the indigenous celebrations in your country. I know you will long remember the experience. The color and pageantry of a First Nation Pow Wow held in Saskatchewan, Canada. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A pow wow (also powwow or pow-wow) is a social gathering held by many different Native American communities. The word derives from the Narragansett word powwaw, meaning "spiritual leader". A similar gathering by California Native People usually in the fall is called a Big Time. A modern pow wow is a specific type of event for Native American/First Nations people to meet and dance, sing, socialize, and honor their cultures. Pow wows may be private or public. There is generally a dancing competition, often with significant prize money awarded. Pow wows vary in length from a one-day event, to major pow wows called for a special occasion which can be up to one week long. In popular culture, such as older Western movies, the term has also been used by non-Natives to describe any gathering of Native Americans, or to refer to any type of meeting among non-Natives (such as military personnel). However, such use may be viewed as cultural appropriation, and disrespectful to Native peoples.
