Experiencing a Pow Wow or competition will be more enjoyable if you remember a few simple things:
- Bring your camera, but please be thoughtful. If you want to take a photograph of an individual, you need to ask permission. Sometimes, payment is appropriate. Do not take photographs if you've been asked not to.
- No matter how beautiful or tempting, please don't touch any costumes. Ornaments may have special meanings, and costumes may be heirlooms, or very delicate.
- Often Pow Wows offer opportunities to purchase jewelry, art, baskets,pottery, rugs, etc.. Bring spending money if you are interested in these items.
- Finally, you are the guest of a Tribal Culture. If you have questions, ask them, but save detailed questions for after celebrations are over, or research them on your own.
