A powwow is a two-century-old tradition designed to bring Native Americans of all tribes together to celebrate a shared culture without censure from the mainstream, said Ray Emmanuel, president of the Native American Indian Association of Tennessee, which has operated the powwow for 23 years.
This year's event, called the NAIA Intertribal Pow Wow & Fall Festival, began as a "family reunion among tribes, where you could meet old friends," he said.
In recent years, the powwow has become more than a way for Native Americans to reconnect - though that is still the main purpose, Emmanuel said.It also is aimed at introducing Native American culture to those outside of it.

The association now operates out of a four-room house on Spence Lane and is limited in space and resources, according to NAIA Executive Director Ray Emanuel.
The organization has raised $190,000 for the center, mainly through individual donations, Emanuel said. The NAIA has not been able to secure bank financing for the project or gain substantial corporate dollars, he said.
"We can't seem to attract their attention," Emanuel said of corporations in the state.
