Every weekend, all summer long, there is a powwow being celebrated someplace, somewhere. Like many other Anishinabe families, Sharyl and Windy Downwind and their children, including a number of foster children, love to go on the powwow trail every summer. In Powwow Summer, author Marcie R. Rendon (who is Anishinabe herself) and award-winning photographer Cheryl Walsh Bellville join the Downwind family as they travel to three powwows. Readers will learn how the Downwinds celebrate the circle of life and the tradition of their people through the ceremonies and dances of the powwow.
