United San Antonio Pow Wow held its annual Celebrations of Traditions Pow Wow, an official Fiesta event, Saturday afternoon at Mission County Park #2 on the South Side. Every year, the organization holds these ceremonies which offer those who attend a view of the traditions and culture of Native Americans. “During the pow wow, wisdom passes from the elders to the children,” according to the United San Antonio Pow Wow website. “To Native American people, the elders and children are most important. Both the young, who are just beginning their journey through life, and the elders, who are near the completion of their journey, share closeness to the Creator.” — Heron staff
