Dancers, drummers and dignitaries participate in the Grand Entry at the 21st annual Pow Wow at the Washington University in St. Louis Field House April 9. This year’s Pow Wow, a festival of American Indian cultures, brought together some of the largest numbers of dancers and drummers in the event’s history. In addition to dancing, singing and drumming, visitors were able to enjoy a number of traditional arts and crafts and community information booths. The Pow Wow is hosted by the Kathryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies at the Brown School and is organized by the Buder Center students. This year’s theme was “There is Wisdom and Wellness Within the Circle.”
