The tradition continued! Thousands of folks experienced Metro Parent’s 18th annual Native American Festival & Mini Pow Wow Nov. 13-14, 2010 at the Southfield Pavillion.

2010 Highlights

  • Guests experienced the power of 2009 National Champion Hoop Dancer, Brian Hammill (see him in the video below!).
  • Children took a walk through our new Native American village.
  • Families tracked and learned about the animals of the Michigan forests.
  • Friends and families celebrated the Native American traditions with a Grand Entry and smudging ceremony.

Annual family favorites

Everyone enjoyed dancers in towering headdresses, elaborately beaded regalia and traditional teepees. Families observed an authentic Mini Pow Wow, with Native Americans dressed in regalia as they performed specialty dances, including hoop, jingle and traditional dance. Children also tapped their feet to the beat of the native drums as the dancers twirled and sang.

Families perused the unique wares at the Native American Arts & Crafts Bazaar, where more than 35 traders from across the Midwest and East Coast sold handmade jewelry, pottery, blankets and more. Guests tasted the autumn bounty including wild rice soup, fry bread, Indian tacos and buffalo burgers.

Kids and parents alike sat around a campfire and heard Native American legends from master storyteller Tony Miron. Finally, everyone took a step back in time as lifestyle demonstrators also entertained the crowds.

See Brian Hammill!
