Product Notes

"Pow wow" is said to derive from the Algonquian words 'pau wau' which means 'he dreams,' and denotes an originally religious significance. Today, pow wows do not retain much religious meaning. Due to misunderstanding all Indian dancing as 'war dances,' and feeling threatened, the white man prohibited them in general until the early 20th century. Over time, tribes joined together in these festivities and with the emergence of a new found Native American pride the old ceremonies were revitalized. This led to inter-tribal pow wows where dances, songs, and other observances were shared. In the many different pow wows held by pow wow clubs throughout the country, dancing remains the highlight and main feature. There are ceremonial as well as social dances and songs. The pow wow itself has been transplanted to the cities, where many of the Indians now live. Each pow wow club, consisting of volunteers, takes the year long responsibility of planning and raising money for this annual event. At these times, differences are put aside and traditions are celebrated, strengthening an entire race of people. This release features famous pow wow singers and drum groups of the Ojibway, the Blackfoot and the Mi'kmaq tribes.
