The beauty and significance of colorful clothing and jewelry, the passion of beating drums, the powerful, meaningful dances. Don’t miss a very special powwow honoring veterans, this Sat at The Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center.
Powwows, like the Mashantucket Pequot Honoring The Veterans Powwow at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum, are public events anyone can go to. But, there are a few things that first timers should learn to expect. Most instructions will come from the announcer so make sure you’re paying attention. Certain parts of a powwow ask the public to stand for events such as the grand entry, flag song or honor songs. Some dances, like intertribals and round dances, are open to the public and some are not. The announcer will inform the public when they can enter the arena to participate in a dance. Cameras are allowed and welcome, but occasionally you’ll be asked not to photograph certain events and if you’d like to stop a dancer and take a picture with them, the proper thing to do is to ask their permission first.
