Dear Kerry, Thank you! Thank you so much! Could you describe a Pow Wow, what is the role/purpose of a Pow Wow currently, and how they are organized, and are you planning of have you planned a virtual Pow Wow in COVID-19?

From Kerry = A pow wow (also, not to be used to refer to a conversation or meeting, is a social gathering for Native people. In Lakota, it’s called “wacipi,” which means to dance. So powwows have opportunities for us to dance together, some competition powwows allow people to make money through contests, eat Native foods, visit with relatives, and support Native artisans and craftspeople.It is seen as inappropriate to Native people to hear non-Natives use this word outside of its context, especially because it was illegal for us to practice our own ceremonies up until 1973.

And yes, there is a Facebook group called “Social Distancing Pow Wow” where people sell things or share videos of themselves dancing.
