Annotation: "Powwow's coming, hear the beat?
Powwow's coming, dancing feet.
Powwow's coming, hear the drum?
Powwow's coming, everyone!"

Frustrated as a schoolteacher not being able to find good instructional materials on American Indians, Linda Boyden has bypassed the tired stereotype of Indians on horseback or hunting game and placed them in today's setting of a powwow.

"Powwow's Coming" provides children with a foundation for understanding and celebrating the enduring culture and heritage of American Indians. Boyden's exquisite cut-paper collage and engaging poem visually place readers within the scenes of a contemporary Native American community while offering a thoughtful look at powwows and their meanings to the Native participants.

Reading level: kindergarten and up
