In collaboration with community members and facilitation by master artists, non-reservation urban Indian youth initiated into intertribal powwow culture through dancing, singing, drumming, song writing, and creating regalia and hand drums.

The project culminated in a music and dance performance at a graduation powwow, transforming the youth into culture bearers and strengthening intergenerational ties.
