We had a great time yesterday visiting this powwow held here in Cody, Wyoming every year. It now attracts more than 200 dancers representing 28 tribes from across the United States. During the two days of powwow visitors will see colorful dancers of all ages and works for sale by authentic native American artists and craftsmen.
Below is a short video of the Grand Entry. It may take a while to download. After the video you will see some additional images.
We truly enjoyed our time at the Powwow, colorful and entertaining. Before the Grand Entry they took the time to honor those which had served in the military during every war.
From old to the very young they all enjoyed dancing in the Grand Entry and all the competitions which followed.
As you see in the image below the Joe Robbie Powwow Garden near the Buffalo Bill Center of the West became nearly filled before the Grand Entry was complete.
In addition to Native American works being offered for sale there was also food. One item offered we had to try, an Indian Taco. I can attest it was delicious!
