Stanford PowWow

I went to the Stanford PowWow (http://www.stanfordpowwow.org/) this past weekend and it was great. It was my first time attending a pow-wow. “A Pow Wow time is the Native American people’s way of meeting together, to join in dancing, singing, visiting, renewing old friendships and make new ones. This is a time to renew thought of the old ways and to preserve a rich heritage.” While it’s mostly for the native americans to meet and celebrate, they opened it up to the public for us to learn about their heritage. Many tribes were present each of them in their traditional attire and they drummed and danced and performed against each other. Was wonderful to watch and enjoy their rich culture and tradition.
