Powwow

powwow \POU-wou\, verb:

1. To confer.

noun:
1. A ceremony, esp. one accompanied by magic, feasting, and dancing, performed for the cure of disease, success in a hunt, etc.

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?
