The contemporary powwow is a gathering of Native Americans, but unlike those of earlier days, it knows no tribal boundaries. Songs and dances once sung or danced only by a specific tribe are now performed by Native Americans from other parts of the country. The contemporary powwow provides an opportunity for people to celebrate their Native American heritage and culture. Richardson describes powwows in North Carolina.
