A beautiful afternoon at Chief Leschi School near Tacoma, WA enjoying the 37th annual Puyallup Tribal Powwow, 2016!
The Grand Entry is the procession of the participants into the dancing area. The Grand Entry is led by an Honor Guard with the dancers following behind.
This is to honor the eagle staffs, government and tribal flags, veterans, and dancers. Similar to government flags, the eagle staffs may represent tribal nations, organizations, or families.
