The powwow is traditionally a gathering of Indian peoples to address tribal problems and form consensus, but most importantly in modern times it has become an opportunity to gather tribes together to honor the earth and the Creator in celebratory drumming, dancing and song. The powwow recorded in July 1990 by Mickey Hart (ethnomusicologist and drummer) and Dr. Thomas Vennum, Jr. (of the Smithsonian) is characteristic in that its repertoire includes traditional song styles as well as new songs composed for a son overseas in the Air Force during WWII, exemplifying a tradition of war songs sung for protection before battle. Such songs have in recent times been composed for each branch of the armed forces, illustrating how tradition is adapted to new contexts.
