Pow Wow

Honor the Earth

An Ojibwe Pow Wow is an amazing spectacle. And the annual “Honor the Earth” Pow Wow held on the Lac Courte Oreilles reservation near Hayward, Wisconsin, is the biggest in the nation. Tribal members and non-natives come from all over North America to dance, sing, and drum.

Of course, photos alone cannot do the celebration justice, but they are all I have.

Clicking on any image will take you to the full gallery.
