“Gathering of Nations Adds New
Dance Category for 2007"
popular demand the Gathering of Nations has added a new adult dance
category to the 2007 Gathering of Nations Pow Wow. The new dance
category is "Women's Northern Traditional Cloth".
The new category is only in response
to several requests from women traditional dancers. For the past 23
years the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow only featured a combined
traditional cloth dance category. This meant that the Northern and
Southern style traditional dancers competed within the same contest and
dancing to both Northern and Southern songs.
This new category is only
provisional for the 2007 pow wow. This means that in order for it to be
featured and continued again in future years, there must be at least 25
dancers signed up for the Women's Northern Traditional Cloth
competition. This new dance category is for adult women only.
