During the Pow Wow, many honour dances will occur. The dances are in honour of someone's special occasion such as birthdays, lengthy anniversary, the loss of a loved one and other honourable occasions. Usually a drum is requested by the family to sing a honour song. The family then would dance around once before the rest of the family members and friends join in the dance.
The oldest of the Indian symbols is the Eagle Staff. On the account of their warrior status, Dog Soldiers were given the honour of carrying the staffs.
Representatives of the Oneida, Cherokee, Lokota, Shinnecock, Navajo, Narragansett, Taino and Aztec peoples were present at this PowWow.
