Summary

Summary

Description: Since the 1800s, Native American Plains tribes have gathered for powwows to celebrate their rich heritage. The tradition continues today with special emphasis on elaborate spiritual and competitive dances. Photographer Chris Roberts has danced on the powwow circuit for more than 30 years and has dedicated his life to sharing the tradition through photographs. POWWOW captures the energy of powwow dancers who proudly preserve their ancestral traditions. Notes: Originally from England, Chris Roberts had his first contact with Indian culture as a small boy. He is dedicated to depicting the richness of American Indian cultures, and the warm spirit of North America's native peoples. Robert's photographs have appeared in numerous books and magazine articles. He has written two books on Native American powwows, Powwow Country and People of the Circle, and is currently at work on a third book. This calendar is in its seventh edition. Pomegranate published this title before Tide-mark. POWWOW features Native Americans in full costume performing the elaborate dances of celebration which are the center of powwows.
