The Indian veterans are honored by their families and tribes, before going into service and their return home. The most visible for the honor of Indian veterans expression can be seen in the pow wows.
Women wear clothing with the names of soldiers involved and their units, while veterans wear their military uniforms decorated with beading, feathers or tribal symbol. There is nothing better than seeing the veterans and military service lead the way dancers in a pow wow proudly wearing the American flag and the flag of their nation.
For Native Americans, pow wows are many, meeting family religious ceremonies.
When the Indians were placed in reserve during the 19th century, due to the pow wow changed quickly. They began to use the dance to find spiritual help and guidance to change. For the Government of the time, it was a threat and banned. The ban was lifted in 1933 and the dancing resumed their importance in tribal life. Pow wow today is a vital part to conserve living cultures.
In many pow wows, veterans are honored. They are invited to open the dance, carrying the flag of the nation and the flag of the United States.
One of the pow wow is specially made each year in November to honor all veterans of the United States.
Less visible, but much more important are rituals has privately made to veterans.
