Wed. 04/29 11a: Some say powwow is more than just the dance and the gathering – it’s a way of life. Today we take a look at what powwow means to Native America and the people who hit powwow highway each year. Does religion play a big role when you step into the powwow arena? Has powwow lost its original meaning over the years or is it as vibrant as when you first danced? Is powwow a true representation of our tribal nations? How do the events on the powwow trail compare to our Native traditions? Join us as bring you voices from the 2015 Gathering of Nations Powwow.
