# 000402 Pow Wow Dancer

Powwow dancers and musicians  refused to abandon their cultural traditions and discriminatory legislation, both on and off reserves. Today, powwows are sometimes a place where both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples can come together in peace to celebrate tradition and promote an enduring culture.
“Powwow” is the English version of the word pau-wau, which originally stood for a healing ceremony conducted by the spiritual or religious leaders of various tribes. This tradition is often carried on today.
