Powwow season kicks off on the Wind River Reservation this weekend with the 60th annual Eastern Shoshone Indian Days. Visitors will have the chance to see singing and dance competitions, try Indigenous foods and shop Native-made art and jewelry. There's also etiquette to keep in mind. 

Wyoming Public Radio's Savannah Maher visited powwow singers and dancers during an exhibition at the Wind River Casino and asked for their advice on being a respectful visitor.
