The word pow-wow or powwow is derived from a Narrangansett word meaning “spiritual leader”. The modern powwows include both Native and non-Native peoples who come together to socialize, sing, and dance. Mostly it is a time to honor the cultures of the Native American Peoples and their rich history on the North American continent.
