The purpose of powwows.dk
As we borrow traditions from a different culture, we also have an obligation to represent this culture as correctly and respectfully as possible. The purpose of powwow.dk is to urge people with dance outfits to show their respect for the Native American culture by doing research, so that their outfits become as authentic as possible. We also wish to give people a general knowledge of what takes place during a powwow and why. It is important to our Native American friends that we display the proper sincerity and respect, so that they can appreciate that powwows are being held in Denmark.

Powwows.dk focuses on powwows, so information about the many other facets of the Native American culture must be obtained elsewhere. The editors do not claim to be experts on powwows, but we see a need to collect as much information as possible in order to help people get started on their research. Therefore we wish to make this information public to all who wish to learn.
