Something magical happens during a Pow Wow and a gathering of Natives. Something you have to experience to really understand.
The world stops for a little bit. The beat moves us forward. Our feet fly across the land as if they are carried by our ancestors. Each of our souls fill with the wisdom of our pasts that will help us with our futures.
Pain and sorrow ease. The sage purifies us. The drumbeats re-energize us.
I can describe the expe
rience every which way. But in order to truly understand it, you must experience it. So find a Pow Wow, honor our Natives, and dance.
