Default Children bring joy to prison powwows

May 29--WALLA WALLA -- Graysun Sherwood lay sprawled across his grandmother's lap, a red Kool-Aid stain ringing his mouth.
A 3-year-old napping amid the sounds of powwow -- the drumming, the singing, the jingling of bells that accompany a dancer's every step or stomp -- would be unremarkable anywhere else in Indian Country.

Our community used to attend many prison powwows and socials. (we have 7 prisons in Kingston). My kids loved it as much as the Men did. They used to ask (this was when they were pre-schoolers) "mom when can we go back to prison?" lol. It's sad that a lot of these programs have been cut up here (Canada) it was good for the men inside as well as the community on the outside
