Powwow Experience

The beating of the drums, the aroma of the sage and sweet grass, the spectrum of the colors of feathers and beads will shift your reality. You will be inspired by the hard work of community who guide you into the sacred circle.


Pitch video


The powwow experience with virtual reality lens will invite you to be an active participant in one North American most celebrated Indigenous ceremonies, the powwow. Viewers will have an intimate view of regalia, people, and community coming together to dance in prayer. The audience will have a sense of a bond with a young dancer who prepares themselves for grand entry, and the viewers potential first grand entry. The scope of the arbor will bring the joy and fulfillment as though they have that sacred circle to dance.
