Abstract

Among the varied Native American communities of Eastern Oklahoma two worlds of dance performance co-exist. The more famous of these is the powwow. With historical roots among the societies of the Great Plains, it has spread to Native American communities throughout North America. This paper examines connections linking the powwow with the less well-known stomp dance, a tradition associated with the ceremonial life of Native peoples whose homelands are in Eastern North America.
