What is a Pow Wow (Wacipi)?
Sometimes called Wacipi (pronounced Wa chee pee), the powwow is a traditional Native American cultural celebration where the generations gather to socialize, dance, sing, visit, renew old friendships and make new ones. In Dakota language, the word “Wacipi” literally means “they dance.” Often held over a weekend, a Powwow is filled with songs and dances, singers with drums, and dancers in their regalia. Regalia (pronounced Re gail ya) is the proper term used to describe the highly decorated clothing worn by the powwow dancers.
