Audio Postcard: Prairie Chicken Dancers Strut Their Stuff At Northern Arapaho Powwow

Governor Mark Gordon signed an executive order last month expanding protections for sage grouse in Wyoming. Meanwhile, some young men at the Northern Arapaho Powwow were borrowing some of the bird's dance moves. Wyoming Public Radio's Savannah Maher spoke with four dancers competing in the Prairie Chicken dance category.

Savannah comes to Wyoming Public Media from NPR’s midday show Here & Now, where her work explored everything from Native peoples’ fraught relationship with American elections to the erosion of press freedoms for tribal media outlets. A proud citizen of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, she’s excited to get to know the people of the Wind River reservation and dig into the stories that matter to them.
