The Powwow

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Yesterday, we went to a powwow because my daughter is doing Native Amercian studies in her 4th grade class. I thought I would share some pictures with all of you.



This is an overview of the powwow.



This is a shawl dancer. They are supposed to represent birds in flight when they dance.



More shawl dancers -- notice the beautiful beadwork on their moccasins if you can see them.



These girls are jingle-dress dancers. The jingles sound so peaceful and calming when they dance -- like bells.



This person is a fancy traditional dancer. You have to be very athletic and in great shape to do this dance.



Not the best picture but it gives you a chance to see his beautiful clothing. He is a grass dancer. They are supposed to look like grass waving in the wind.



I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed going to the powwow.
