Powwow Etiquette
There are several guidelines that you should know as a courtesy to the Powwow participants: Powwows are fun events, but they are also sacred events. Ceremonial songs and dances, which are sacred, are performed from time to time throughout the powwow. Respect the Elders, Drummers, Singers, Dancers, and the Powwow staff and Committee.Powwow Etiquette - Akwesasne International Powwow -
Visitors should be listening to the M.C. as he/she announces the ceremonial songs and lets people know when they can dance and when they cannot dance. Visitors should bring their own chairs, as the chairs around the dance arena are for the dancers. Do not walk across the dance arena. Out of respect, visitors should stand quietly and always remove their hat/headgear.
The dancers wear "regalia" while they are dancing, these are not "costumes". People should not touch the regalia. Never pick up a piece of a dancer's outfit. Point out the item to the dancer and they will retrieve it.

 Powwow Etiquette - Akwesasne International Powwow
It is requested you do not take any photos, videos or sound recordings of ceremonies without prior permission from the person or group you are recording. Some areas of Turtle Island to not allow the recording of ceremonies. Photography is permitted only at certain times; listen to the M.C. for details. If you would like to photograph individuals, please ask them for their permission first and respect their decision.
Pow-Wow's bring together the best Native artisans, drummers and dancers from the region. Come enjoy these events that offer good music, good food and good company.
