Native American Pow Wow

This weekend is the 40th Annual California Indian Center Pow Wow at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles. I have waited two years for this event, and the first thing I’m going to do when I get there is to have some frybread. Mmm, mmm, good!

Last year I was all ready to go, but the day before the pow wow I moved to Kauai for three months to work on “Tropic Thunder” (which opens mid-August). I was thrilled to be in Kauai, but disappointed I had to miss the pow wow.

Then in October I came back to Los Angeles the day before the Indian Pow Wow on Kauai. Talk about bad timing!

This year nothing is stopping me from going.

Besides frybread there will be arts and crafts displays and Native American dancing, which is always a highlight of the experience.

It’s going to be a lot of fun.

I've never been to one and it's not likely that I ever will, so ... Enjoy and run for the drum!
