Pow Wow

During the events at Standing Rock in 2016 I realised I knew very little about Native or Indigenous Americans and how they live or are treated today. In order to understand the conflict better I started reading up on the matter and came across the Pow Wows; large gatherings where the different communities and tribes all across the US meet for days of dancing, singing and honoring their heritage and culture. I spent three days in Milwaukee at the Hunting Moon Pow Wow witnessing the intense dancing, the strong unity and beautifully crafted regalia.
