Pow-wow (also powwow or pow wow) is a gathering held by various Native American communities.
The name comes from the Narragansett language, from the word powwaw, meaning "spiritual leader."
Modern Pow-wow is an event where people dance, sing, socialize and discuss the culture of Indigenous People. Dance competitions are held at Pow-wow, often with cash prizes.
Pow-wow can last from several hours to three days, and sometimes up to a week.
