powwow \POU-wou\, verb:

1. To confer.

1. A ceremony, esp. one accompanied by magic, feasting, and dancing, performed for the cure of disease, success in a hunt, etc.
2. A council or conference of or with Native Americans.

Powwow derives from the Narragansett tribal word for a spiritual leader who receives guidance from dreams.

If all men powwowed to the base desires of their hearts, would anything ever get accomplished?
