Pow Wow Trail is a unique series of DVDs consisting of 11 episodes covering all aspects of the pow wow. Each DVD is approximately an hour in length and explains the pow wow through the voices and teachings of Elders, singers, and dancers involved in the pow wow. Producer Jeremy Torrie and his film crew spent a two-year period travelling to more than 40 powwows across the continent recording the material about the powwow. Episode 1 focuses on The Drum and how everything about the powwow revolves around it. The drum is the heartbeat of the Nations. Understanding the origin, function, construction, and meaning of the drum is explained by several Elders including Eddie Benton Benai and Dave Courchene. Episode 2 discusses the Songs; Episode 3 covers the Dances; Episode 4 covers The Grand Entry; Episode 5 explores Grass Dance and Men's Traditional; Episode 7 shows The Fancy Dance. Episode 7 features musicians such as Buffy Sainte-Marie, Keith Secola; Ulali, and Robbie Robertson who have adapted traditional music into a new style, Row-Wow Rock. Episode 8 discusses the important role of Women within the Powwow as well as the Jingle dress dance and traditional dances. Episode 9 describes The Grand Exhibition as presented by the Pequot Nation during Schemitzun. Episode 10 describes the phenomena known as The White Man's Indian as Europeans learn Native languages and traditional dances as they seek cultural and spiritual identities within the Powwow. The final Episode 11 presents highlights from the previous DVDs that celebrate the people, the stories, the places and the dances of the Powwow. The Teacher's Guide compact disc accompanies the collection. It contains 7 powwow songs and 11 suggested lesson activities. These suggested lessons are each 6 pages (Word document) and include black line masters, discussion questions and answers. This is a valuable addition to documentaries that present an Indigenous perspective to First Nations music and dance.
