VICE Magazine's 'A Bishop Pow Wow' spread captures an incredible Bishop, California Native American celebration. In what has become an annual event, the pow wow is now recognized as a highly symbolic phenomenon and is frequently referenced for its mesmerizing display of bright and authentic tribal fashion.

The yearly California pow wow has brought together Canadian and American Native American cultures. Through sets of traditional dance and song, the international groupings have displayed their time-honored skills.

Author of A Bishop Pow Wow Samuel Zide has taken note of the association's distinct ensembles which are hand-crafted and frequently passed down from one generation to the next. While this is an essential aspect of the Native American mantra, it furthermore exhibits the way in which distinct practices may be preserved.
