The notion of transculturation is key to understanding the many intertribal, interracial, and intergenerational exchanges-- including the attendance of indigenous peoples from across the Americas--that take place at powwow in the United States and Canada. Chapter 5 explores this concept by examining the sites at which transcultural exchanges are most prevalent: the Grand Entry, the “intertribal,” and the Tiny Tots dance category. The body actions and regalia involved in traditional men’s and women’s dance styles and substyles are analyzed, and gender issues are also considered.
