Everybody Dance! Seven Decades of Chicago Powwow
The American Indian Center is honored to present Everybody Dance! - a triumphant photography exhibition commemorating seven decades of Chicago intertribal powwows. The powwow is the centerpiece of contemporary intertribal Indian culture; it is how Native Americans honor traditional values and demonstrate cultural exchange.
Everybody Dance! portrays a retrospective of Chicago powwows. This exhibit houses images that fuse contemporary media with the ancient practice of storytelling. Everybody Dance! is aimed at enhancing an unwritten culture, to provide first-voice insight to intertribal, urban, Native American customs.
