OCTOBER 1 - 2, 2005
31st Annual Pow Wow at Thomas Square in Honolulu, Hawai`i
The American Indian Pow Wow Association (“AIPA”)

Saturday and Sunday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Everyone is invited to attend this free event, which will feature competition dancing, drumming, singing, arts and crafts, and food. All drums and dancers are welcome.

Head staff at the Thomas Square Pow Wow include: Head Man Dancer, Shane Ridley Stevens (Te-Moake Band of Western Shoshoni); Head Woman Dancer, Rose Olney Sampson (Yakama); Master of Ceremonies, John Dawson (San Carlos Apache); and Arena Director Tom Rowland (Oglala Lakota). The Host Drum is Wild Rice, with guest drums Red Thunder, Wild Horse and Seven Buffalo Singers.

This will be the first time the Seven Buffalo Singers will participate in a Hawaii pow wow. This Drum comes from Anchorage, Alaska and sings a mixture of Northern Plains songs and Alaska Native songs. The drum keeper and lead singer is Frank Buck (Assiniboine/Grosventre) who is originally from Montana. Other members of the drum are Cup`ik, Athabascan, Yupik, Inupiat and Scottish. Some of the singers are also members of the Cup`ik and Yupik Dance groups.



They call themselves Seven Buffalo Singers because they are uniting Alaska Natives and American Indian Nations. The Buffalo is sacred to the People of the Northern Plains, just as the Whale and Salmon are sacred to Alaska Natives. They advocate maintaining a drug and alcohol free lifestyle by adhering to traditional cultural values. Seven Buffalo Singers have performed in Fairbanks, Anchorage and various venues throughout Alaska, inlcluding various drug rehabilitation centers. They are anxious to meet the indigenous people of Hawai`i and are looking for opportunities for cultural exchange.

Of the several Pow wows which take place statewide each year, only the Thomas Square Pow wow features competition dancing. Audiences will enjoy the lively footwork of fancy dancers, grass dancers, fancy shawl and jingle dancers as well as the stately eloquence of traditional dancers. Each dance has its own history; each dancer has a story to tell.

Thomas Square is located between Beretania & South King Streets and between Ward Avenue and Victoria Street, across from the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
