A pow wow is often set up as a series of large circles.
Though there are many genres unique to different tribes pow wow music is characterized by pan or intertribalism with the Plains cultures , the originators of the modern pow wow, predominating.
The host drums are often called upon to sing special songs during the pow-wow.

If there are contests the arena director is ultimately responsible for providing judges, though they often have another assistant who is the head judge.
In some regions it is considered disrespectful to leave a drum completely unattended.
