Incredible Video of Men’s Fancy Dance Competition at the 25th Annual Black Hills Powwow


The vibrant, explosive energy of the Mens' Fancy Dance competition at the Black Hills Powwow this past October 7-9 was a sight to see. Luckily, we have the video so you can see it, too. The powwow took place at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid CIty, South Dakota. The theme this year was "Empowering Our Youth," as hundreds of dancers, singers, artisans and several thousand spectators came from states and provinces across the United States and Canada.

As the pow wow season winds down, we'll be putting up our favorite pow wow videos from this past year from all over the country. As every pow wow season winds down, it offers up a time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the future. These awesome videos make it easy to feel like the future is a bright one indeed.

If there's a particular pow wow video out there that you love (or that you filmed yourself) and you want us to put it up on our site, email us at
