Tips for our Pow Wow Visitors

  • When the eagle staff is brought in during the grand entry, everyone stands. Hats are removed in respect. The same respect is shown should an eagle feather fall during the dancing. Everything must stop until a proper returning of the feather has been performed.
  • Pointing with a finger, particularly the index finger, is considered impolite. It is best to indicate a person or direction by pursing the lips and pointing with the eyes or to nod in the direction.
  • As with most events involving competition and concentration, camera flashes can be distracting. Photos must be taken from outside of the dance area.
  • Consider the privacy of the individual, and ask permission before you record them on tape or film. This includes spectators and craftspeople as well as the dancers and singers.
  • Certain dances and ceremonies are not to be recorded or photographed. Listen to the Master of Ceremonies who will announce when such activities are not allowed. Videotaping is often strongly discouraged.
  • Do not bother the performers or stand in front of those preparing to dance or sing.
  • Do not touch any of the dancers’ outfits. Ornaments have special meanings and many of the handmade outfits, which can c
