Pow Wow Etiquette and Tips

Pow Wow is a fun event, but also a sacred event. Ceremonial songs and dances will be performed.  For our patrons, we ask you to consider the following to make the Pow Wow an enjoyable experience for all.

  • Honor and Respect the Pow Wow. Pow Wow is a sacred event. Ceremonial songs and dances will be performed.
  • Respect the Elders. Please do not talk while they are speaking on the public address system.
  • Dress Appropriately. Revealing clothing is considered disrespectful.
  • Listen to the Emcee. He keeps the singers, dancers, and general public informed of what is happening.
  • Do Not Touch the Dancers or Their Regalia. The ornaments and dress are considered sacred objects and/or family heirlooms.
  • Ask Permission Before Taking a Photo or Recording. Do not enter the dance arena for a photo. Refrain from taking photographs of young children who are not your family members.
  • Respect the Flag Song. The Flag Song or Indian National Anthem is sung when the American Flag is raised or lowered. Please stand and remove hats during the singing of this song.
  • Seating Around the Dancing Circle is Reserved for drummers, singers, and dancers.
  • When a blanket dance is announced, donations collected will be given to the person or drum group being honored.
  • Bleachers are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own chairs.
  • Please no pets at the Pow Wow. We ask no pets because it is a stimulating event even for the well behaved pets.

If you have any questions, the Emcee, Arena Director, dancers, elders or staff are happy to help.

Most of all, enjoy yourself.
