Never touch a powwow dancer’s regalia or a singer’s drum without asking. Follow the emcee’s instructions to know when to stand. Stay off the arena floor unless invited. Those are some of the universal practices that will keep you in good standing if you go to a powwow. Whether you were born into a powwow family or are a new visitor to the dance circle, it’s important to know the protocols and appropriate behavior. We’ll talk with powwow veterans about the best ways to ensure everyone has a meaningful powwow experience.
