72nd Annual Shinnecock Pow-Wow
If you’ve never been to a Native American Pow-Wow, you’re in for a treat for all senses. Singing. Dancing. Tribal attire, headdresses, jewelry, tools and artifacts. Demonstrations and celebrations. And plenty of food and refreshments, both contemporary and culturally inspired.
USA Today called the Shinnecock gathering one of 10 Great Pow-Wows for its traditional dance and drum performances and its focus on native arts and crafts. And this festival really puts the Wow in Pow-Wow with more than 100 other tribes traditionally invited to attend.
