This book is filled with photographs showing pow wows and dance costumes over the past 100 years, accompanied by written histories and first-hand accounts.
North American tribes from coast to coast are celebrating their continuing native heritage with frequent pow wows, where the people gather for camping, singing, feasting, and dancing. Crowds come from near and far, often from around the world, some wearing family heirloom costumes, while other dress in the latest native and non-native fashions. This book includes numerous pen and ink drawings illustrating many of the items worn with pow wow costumes, as well as information on how they are made. Dancers, craftworkers, and historians will study these pages with a magnifying glass to learn more details about the American continent's pow wow life.
