Kahnawake Powwow 2011: Photos and Video

It’s #PowwowWednesday! And to quote kahsennanoron, “holy people & technology are fast”. The day after the 2011 Kahnawake Powwow took place in Kahnawake, Quebec, hundreds of photos and, so far, over twenty videos have popped up online.

For those of us who can’t make it out to the powwows, the abundant documenting of these gatherings gives us a sense of being there – at least the senses of sight and sound are sated. If anyone can get the smells online, let me know. The immediacy connects us too – knowing these photos were just taken, the drum seems to still reverberate in the background.

Some of the best photos can be found on southshorecommunity‘s flickr set.

Here’s the grand entry:

Thank you to everyone who captures these moments!
