While driving on the interstate, a big sign appeared advertising a Multi=Cultural Indian Pow-Wow Event. This beautiful sign was so colorful and attractive that it caused investigation. Wow! What a surprise. Admission was free. What a wonderful way to give back to families and the public. Not a dull moment was ever encountered. Programming was very educational and entertaining for all ages. It was fantastic for children. The colors of all the costumes were beautiful and them music was great. What a tremendous way for Des Moines, Iowa to capitalize on tourism. This event is a real winner for Des Moines, surrounding areas, and all of Iowa; in fact for all of U.S.A. Everyone should help to keep this event going and growing! How? The word of mouth is very powerful! OH! What a wonderful day and evening. Thank you. We will be back next year.

I have had the honor of performing at the White Eagle Multicultural Pow Wow for the past 3 yrs. It's wonderful being part of an event that truly embraces all cultures and what they represent. In those years, I have learned SO MUCH and each year I cherish and look forward to learning more, as well as sharing my art form of Bellydance. Another widely misunderstood form. This past August, it had been raining during the day, and by the time my troupe's performance time came around, it was questionable if we were going to be able to perform. With the amazing love and guidance of the Pow Wow's organizers, we wanted to perform anyway. We danced on the ground instead of the stage to make sure no one slipped, and we felt so free performing that way. Even the mud created from the rain couldn't deter us. We were there to share in this wonderful experience of learning and sharing, and would never miss it for anything. I look forward to performing in 2013!!!!
