    The 28th annual Edmonds Community College powwow will feature traditional American Indian singing, dancing and storytelling.

Powwows are social ceremonies that celebrate American Indian traditions so the whole family can attend the 28th annual Edmonds Community College powwow starting Friday night.
This year, the theme for the annual powwow is "Teachings of the Wolves" and it will be a feast of American Indian singing, drumming and dancing, along with arts and crafts.
This is also a contest powwow so the audience will be in store for some performers competing at their best.
Dance and drum ceremonies start at 7 Friday night; at 1 and 7 p.m., Saturday; and at 1 p.m., Sunday.
Native storytelling will bepresented during intermissions from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday.
This free event is on the campus of Edmonds Community College campus in the Seaview Gym, 20000 68th Ave. W, Lynnwood.
Powwows combine lots of American Indian tribes' traditions, including dance styles, songs and a variety of clothing. Dancers and drummers come to the college's powwow from tribes throughout the Northwest and United States. Local tribes, including the Muckleshoot, Lummi, and Tulalips, will be represented as well.
Other highlights for this year's powwow include musician and educator Arlie Neskahi, of the Navajo Nation of New Mexico, who will be master of ceremonies but is also known for his performance skills and his skill with traditional music.
The lead women's dancer is Tilda Walsey and there will be a men's traditional performance, sponsored by J.C. Allen-Tacket, the lead men's dancer, according to press information.
