Clyde Ellis has written the first comprehensive history of Southern Plains powwow culture—an interdisciplinary, highly collaborative ethnography based on more than two decades of participation in powwows. In seeking to determine what "powwow people" mean by so designating themselves, he addresses how the powwow and its role in contemporary Indian identity have changed over time—along with its songs and dances—and how Indians for nearly a century have used dance to define themselves within their communities.
