A couple weeks ago or maybe three, I can’t remember anymore, I attended my first Indian Pow-Wow. I can’t really say why I never caught one before now, probably too darn hot or some other similarly sad yet seemingly reasonable excuse at the time, but I really enjoyed it. I can’t wait until September for the next one. There were a lot of Indians, big surprise I know, performers, great food, sunny skies and a great setting.
I took as many pictures as I could and I’ll include them here in what will feel like an endless line of images. I found out the easy way you can’t take pictures of everything otherwise the elderly gentleman with a mic will announce to photographing world to stop taking pictures please. So we stopped. I did capture as many as I could of the day and in particular the parts of the ceremony we were able to photograph and/or record. I hope you enjoy them.
Oh, ha-ha, I just saw the dates in the picture above with the dates I was there lol…
These guys seemed to appear out of nowhere.
This next gentleman played the most beautiful music from what I believe was a flute that he made.
The next series of images are of the beginning of the ceremony and The Hoop Dance.
There was a period of time after the completion of this dance when we weren’t able to photograph or record. The last few images are of the very end of the ceremony when photography was allowed again.
These last three are my favorites…
There’s my day as seen through a dslr camera. If you ever have a chance to go to an Indian Pow-Wow do yourself a favor and go. It’s quite a cultural and learning experience.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoyed your stay. If you did, please hit like or share, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Until next time…please take care of yourselves!
