Video | Powwow Gear

Here’s a cool commercial for the 2010 Tulsa Pow Wow produced by Ryan Red Corn, Sterlin Harjo and the other whizzes at Buffalo Nickel Creative. The music is the Tulsa Powwow Song, recorded at the 2008 Tulsa Powwow. It was originally composed by James Asa Anquoe and given to the Tulsa Indian Club in 1953. I appreciate this video because it shows dancers getting ready, putting on their gear. Oftentimes we see them dancing or striking a pose, but here we get to see the prep. And that's cool, for sure.
