Waiting for things to get started, I snapped a few pictures.
Before they could begin they needed to preform what they referred to as smudging. I don't know all the particulars because I couldn't hear the announcer very well but it consisted of waving smoke over each of the dancers. It had something to do with cleansing them of negative feelings. (Anyone who knows about native American traditions please feel free to correct me)
The dancers are lined up waiting their turn to be smudged.

Tomorrow I'll bring pictures of some of the dancers
