Taken from Chapter 11: Dancing There are many kinds of dances at a powwow. Some dances are performed by men only, and others are danced by women only. Some are danced by men and women of the same Nation, and others are open to people of all Nations. When people from many different Nations dance together non-competitively, the dance is called an inter-tribal dance. The first and last dances performed at a powwow are always inter-tribal dances. The dancers move around the circle in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. The direction depends on the tradition of the Nation in whose territory the powwow is being held.
