27th Annual POW WOW


Steve 在電視上看到有一個免費參觀美國原住民/印地安人的項目:27th Annual POW WOW 
Saturday, March 25, 2017


地點在 Washington University 舉行。


原來印地安人也有很多族群。


 這杖似乎是'幫主'的象徵。


不過,還有另一支較小的,總之應有其意。


看到他們手上的羽毛扇,讓我想起小時候,那時我家也有一支類似的大羽毛扇。

們分佈在各州。


各族的服飾各有特色。


主要的樂器是鼓,是一群6-10人一起擊鼓。

他們有分組,幼、少、青、黄金年齡跳舞比賽。各族有他們不同的舞步。


I bought a pendant, US$1.

Hi Joan. Neither of us were out there dancing. :-) This was the 27th Annual Pow Wow in St. Louis - a gathering of a bunch of native American tribes, and this was part of the dance competition. I had never heard about the event, until a filler piece on the news this morning.

Yeah, at old time, even the native people they lived far apart like in America and Asia, but they had some common eg. cloth, decoration, dance, ritual...

I was there one year and learned that there are POW WOWs every weekend through out the country. :)

I was surprised I'd never heard of it before. They also had flyers for "Native American markets", near Cahokia Mounds in April, and in St. Charles in November.

Someone told me the Native American Indian and Chinese/Asian are related. Look at their eyes.

check out the story. It was believed the ancestor came from Asia. I think the latest finding showed the DNA also point to European+Middle East.

Huh
That day I looked at those Native American, I said to Steve, they reminded me of those Native Chinese tribes, they seemed have some common feature... :) My thought is close.
