   schema:description "This anthology examines the origins, meanings, and enduring power of the powwow. Held on and off reservations, in rural and urban settings, powwows provide an important way for Native peoples to gather regularly. Although sometimes a paradoxical combination of both tribal and intertribal identities, they are a means by which many groups maintain important practices. This book begins with an exploration of the history and significance of powwows, ranging from the Ho-Chunk dances of the early twentieth century to present-day southern Cheyenne gatherings to the contemporary powwow circuit of the Northern Plains. Contributors discuss the powwow's performative and cultural dimensions, including emcees, song and dance, the expression of traditional values, and the Powwow Princess. The final section examines how powwow practices have been appropriated and transformed by Natives and non-Natives during the past few decades. Of special note is the use of powwows by Native communities in the eastern United States, by Germans, by gay and lesbian Natives, and by New Agers."@en ;
