Aztec Dancers Kick Off Powwow

Posted: Updated:

An annual event that draws thousands of people to Bismarck started today.  Hundreds of people are arriving for the first Grand Entry of this year's United Tribes International Powwow.

The event has become famous for the dancing that takes place during the Grand Entries. Traditional and fancy dancing from Northern Plains Tribes are the most common types of demonstrations spectators see. However this year, the Xipetotec Aztec Dancers from Mexico will provide an entirely different style of dancing. Today at the Powwow Summit the group gave a glimpse of the colorful routine they have performed all over the United States and Canada.

"I have three daughters, it's very important to me that they pick up on this and continue it, it's not something that's taught in schools so it's up to us to teach it and to our younger generation and hopefully they continue it with their kids and grand kids," says dancer Manuel Garcia.

 

The Aztec Dancers will be performing during the Grand Entry tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday.
