A POWWOW SUMMER ACROSS NORTH AMERICA is a study which explores the intercultural identity and roll of powwows as a cornerstone of an American Indian way of life in North America. This study utilizes data collection techniques such as field notes including a journal; participant observation; and informal and unstructured interviews. This study captures the understandings of the participants through a collection and analysis of artifacts (photographs) as a means of conveying the story. This study establishes Indian identity within the contemporary powwow, allowing native voices to be heard.
