Stanford Powwow 2010
Not too far away in past Hollywood was making ‘Cowboys and Indians’ movies. The stories of those movies might have been different, but the theme was the same: European-descent Cowboys were good, indigenous people (American Indians) were bad. [Who cares if the Europeans were stealing Indians’ lands and that was the reason the Indians were so mad at the foreigners.] But a few decades later things have changed. Popular sympathy is turning towards the American Indians. Now annual Powwows (celebrations of the American Indian culture) are held all over the US. The 39th annual Stanford Powwow 2010 took place May 7 through May 9.
