By Johnny Arlee. Softcover, 104 pages.
For over a hundred years, the Arlee Fourth of July Celebration, or Powwow, on the Flathead Indian Reservation has brought people together to honor the traditions of the Salish. Over a Century of Moving to the Drum: Salish Indian Celebrations on the Flathead Indian Reservation, by Salish teacher and spiritual advisor Johnny Arlee, offers a tribute to this longstanding event.
Lavishly illustrated wtih pen and ink sketches of powwow scenes and photographs of powwows in the 1940's, the main narrative is based on interviews Arlee conducted with Salish Elders in teh 1970's. Excerpts of the interviews - and interviews with modern powwow participants - round out the volume.
