Powwow Summer

A Family Celebrates the Circle of Life

Author Marcie Rendon, Photography by Cheryl Bellville

Travel the powwow trail with an Anishinaabe family, the Downwinds of Red Lake, as they gather with relatives and friends to lift up the traditions of their people through ceremonies and dances.

Marcie Rendon, Anishinabe, enrolled member of the White Earth Nation, is a playwright, poet, and writer. She has published four nonfiction children’s books and two novels, Murder on the Red River and Girl Gone Missing. She is a community arts activist and a curator who supports other Native artists/writers/creators to pursue their art. In 2012 she and Diego Vázquez Jr. established the Women’s Writing Program (WWP) in correctional facilities in Ramsey, Sherburne, and Washington counties in Minnesota, where more than two hundred imprisoned women participated in poetry workshops that led to more than thirty published anthologies of poetry. In her Incubator Residency at WAM, Marcie researched the causes and effects of the disproportionate rates of incarceration of Native American women in Minnesota.
