The Annual Cleveland Powwow, already the largest powwow in Ohio, is still growing. It is sponsored by the American Indian Education Center (AIEC) of Cleveland.
The weather was hot and sunny, the crowds were large, the Indian regalia was vibrant and the music, dancing and camaraderie were inspiring.
One of the highlights was the dancing of a group of Aztec Indians who came all the way from Mexico City
