Native Americans from all over the U.S. and Canada gathered this weekend to sing, dance and renew thought about the old ways at the 41st annual Mother's Day pow wow at McArthur Court. The celebration began Friday night, went all day Saturday and ended with a barbecue on Sunday at the Many Nations Longhouse. The celebration began with a grand entry parade, in which the dancers honor the eagle and tribal flags. Dyed feather-bustles, moccasins and buffalo designs all moved to heavy drum beats.
