Native Humor: Pow Wow Jokes and More Stick Figure Indian Cartoons

Is it pow wow season yet? In the meantime, Stick figure Indians and pow wow jokes...

Ok, It’s February, and aside from a few early-bird pow wow organizers, we know that pow wow season is still a few months away. We know that you have likely looked at your regalia a few times with longing, or perhaps listened to some of your drum group CDs with an ache in your heart and a glistening of your eyes.

Sometimes, sadly, we just have to wait it out.

So to bring a bit of cheer and hope, here are a few pow wow jokes and Stick Figure Indian cartoons embracing the pow wow theme. Enjoy if you can while we wait for warmer weather.
