Educational Powwow at the Pequot Museum

The Pequot Museum’s Educational Powwow is a narrated exhibition showcasing Native American dancers and the significance of this cultural gathering for indigenous people. Gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the powwow experience and how it helps sustain a sense of community for America’s first people. The educational powwow begins with the Grand Entry, during which all the dancers line up by dance style and age and enter the museum's glass enclosed Gathering Space in a parade format. This is both exciting and visually inspiring part of the powwow tradition.
