It is going to be a big pow wow and it is sure to be entertaining and maybe even a little educational.  They have meanings and knowledge in all facets of the Native American traditions, bringing an opportunity for them to share that knowledge with the public through their art, music, dance and storytelling.   For instance, the beating of the drum represents the heartbeat of Mother Earth and their dancing is for healing, balance and harmony.  Little Big Mountain and the Big Mountain dancers will be sharing traditional Native American drumming, fluting, singing and various styles of dance throughout the weekend.  The Big Mountain family’s performances started back in the mid 1800’s with Little’s great grandfather performing with the famous “101 Ranch Buffalo Bill Show.”  Chipa Wolfe will join in again this year, with a new and exciting demonstration of his Native American horsemanship skills.  Shelley Morningsong with her husband, Fabian Fontinelle, bring contemporary and traditional music with Native American themes to create a unique and infectious sound that will leave you wanting more. Fabian is also a Zuni performer/storyteller and one of the founding members of the Native American Dance Theater.  Together, they create a performance that invokes the true spirit of Native America.

There will be 100% authentic, handmade, one-of-a-kind fine arts and crafts, paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, bead work and leather work for you to purchase, along with fantastic Native American food.

So come out and join the tribes, learn and experience their style of life!
