Panokee Cherokee Powwow

A Native American PowWow is a celebration of heritage and traditions. It is a way for Native Americans to connect with each other while keeping their culture alive through dance, song and storytelling. There is a circle in most dances, representing the circle of unity, the cycle of life. Native American gatherings provide opportunities to educate non-natives about their culture and traditions. As with the sacred thread that runs through all of life, there are sacred traditions to be found in this coming together of people.

An Inter-Tribal Native American Pow-Wow is intended for all Native American Tribes to participate in, no matter what tribe affiliation you are from.

  1. Local native events and powwow information continues to be updated the list will be posted on our Facebook page, Cherokee Community of the Inland Empire  for your convenience.

  2. she couldn’t dtelciry discuss the court case but that being Cherokee and preserving the tribe means to preserve the traditional customs and culture. The question is, was she referring to the traditional customs of a certain time period for the Cherokees, or did she mean the combined traditions throughout the entire history. Do you have to be blood related to a tribe to be part of their culture, especially if your family history and identity with the tribe goes back several generations?I think this will continue to be an interesting story to keep an eye on. The only personal comment that I can make is that neither party in this case are winners. The damage to both sides has already been done in one way or another.

    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
