NATIVE AMERICAN POW WOWS
A “pow wow” is a meeting of different tribes.
Native Americans believed that each tribe had a strong relation with nature and the world. They sometimes had a meeting with other tribes and prayed.
Through their prayers, nature answered their questions. These meetings had also dancing and singing. To show their respect to nature, they imitated animals during their sacred dances.
Some traditional communities still practice pow wows to honor their ancestors and preserve their heritage.
