Only in dance, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, do we know how to tell the parable of the highest things. There will be plenty of dance as well as storytelling, arts and crafts, drumming and chanting -- at the 37th annual Denver March Powwow, a celebration of the oldest and most traditional components of Native American culture.
The Powwow opens at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 18, at the Denver Coliseum, 4600 Humboldt Street, and runs through the weekend; events go as late as 11:30 p.m. each day. But the greatest thrill could be the Grand Entry, a parade featuring intricate costuming and dazzlingly intricate choreography, set for 7 p.m. March 18 and March 19, and 11 a.m. March 20. Tickets are $7 per day, or $20 for a three-day pass; for more information, call 303-934-8045.
March 18-20, 10 a.m.-10 p.m., 2011
