Native Americans dance as the National P

Return to Native Americans dance as the National P

Washington, UNITED STATES: Native Americans dance as the National Pow Wow gets started 12 August 2005 at the MCI Center in Washington, DC. Representatives from many of America’s Native American tribes are in town for the 2005 National Pow Wow, a social gathering of hundreds of Native Americans who follow traditional dances started centuries ago by their ancestors, which continually evolve to include contemporary aspects. Usually held between April and October, these events of drum music and dance are attended by Natives and non-Natives, all of whom join in the dancing and take advantage of the opportunity to see old friends and teach the traditional ways to a younger generation.
