POWWOW

By: George Ancona

From School Library Journal
 

Feathers, beads, fringe, paint, bells, and shawls--these are the images that first bombard a spectator at a Native American powwow. But what does it all mean? Ancona provides an introduction to the modern powwow that explains everything. Focusing on the Crow Fair in Montana, he takes readers through the standard events that one can see at almost any powwow across the country, whether on a reservation or in the city. A time of visiting friends and being with other Indian people, the outings are also a chance for dancers to strut their stuff and compete against their peers. Young Anthony Standing Rock is shown playing with friends and then getting dressed in his traditional dance outfit. The festivities, beginning with the opening "parade" called the Grand Entry and on through the standard dances, are described and illustrated with well-placed, full-color photos that clearly reflect the text. Participants and spectators are also shown buying fries and drinks at one of the many concession stands. An exquisite kaleidoscope of Native American music, customs, and crafts. --Lisa Mitten, University of Pittsburgh, PA.
