Pow Wows in Michigan
In NOISE PhotoBlog yesterday, Jeremy Herliczek writes [about his photos]: "The Riverbank Traditional Powwow took place this weekend on the banks of the Grand River at Louis Adado Riverfront Park in downtown Lansing."
Read Powwow on the Grand and watch the audio slideshow.
So, what is a Pow Wow? According to an aritcle on Powwows.com, "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." Click here to learn more.
