Culture shines during powwow

One of Goff & Howard’s clients, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, enjoyed one of its most celebrated events last weekend – the 44th annual Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe traditional powwow.

Powwows are American Indian celebrations of ceremonial and social dance traditions. They take place on reservations throughout the country and include singing, dancing, drumming and more. There are contest powwows, where dancers compete against each other in style and appearance, and there are traditional powwows, where participants take part for social enjoyment. Last weekend’s powwow was a traditional powwow.

The slideshow features pictures from the powwow taken by Band member and artist Steve Premo.
