The Dance for Mother Earth powwow attracts American Indian dancers, singers and drummers from throughout the nation. Dancers ranging in age from toddlers to elders compete in several styles of dance - fancy, traditional, grass and jingle dress - wearing traditional and contemporary regalia. Competing drum groups provide vocal and rhythmic accompaniment to the dancers as they themselves are judged. Cash prizes are presented to winners in all the competitions.
A variety of American Indian culture is expressed through vendor exhibits of arts, crafts, music, contemporary and traditional foods, and information on social and political issues that currently challenge local, regional and national American Indian communities.
