This past weekend, DJ Logic & John Popper teamed up with Oteil Burbridge, Ron Holloway + Friends at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, FL for Biscuit Fest 7. Check out a couple of highlights from the show below including Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious" and Blues Traveler's "Run Around"
In the past 35 years the Gathering of Nations has grown from an early, simple dream to one of the world’s most recognized annual festivals.
From the beginning the concept has always been to produce an event where Native people can come together each year to celebrate and share culture, and a place where singers and dancers can feel confident that competition is fair to all.
From those genuine and humble beginnings that the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow has evolved into the event you see today, as well as its role in many community outreach efforts. None of this could be have been accomplished without the loyalty and dedication of good volunteers, friends and family.
It was here at the Gathering of Nations that “powwow fever” has shed its warmth on such a wonderful lifestyle, and continues to be of great appeal and intrigue to young people interested in learning more about their own personal tribal traditions and the powwow way.
Flint Carney, a long time friend and member of the Kiowa tribe, who said, “The greatest thing about the Gathering of Nations is the respect that is shown to all Native people of the world.”
This is the way of powwow life and teachings, which are provided and handed down from the elders to the younger generations. The Gathering of Nations experience does not end when you leave and head for home, but rather continues in your heart and mind, remains with you down the road to the next event, powwow or your own personal family gathering(s).
