Saving Mother Earth part 2

The announcer gave the go ahead to take pictures and out came the camera again.
It was an extremely warm day and my friend Debbie and I chose to watch much of the dancing from the shade of some near by trees. I did move up close to get some pictures though.
I can't tell you what the dances were, I'm afraid that what information I did hear melted out of my brain before I reached home.





This next guy was my favorite to watch. I found the way that he preformed the dances was fascinating.

There was a younger boy who was dressed very similar to the guy above. I happened to be walking by him as he was bending over to pick something up. His feathers were just begging me to take their picture.

I can almost hear their chants and the bells on their feet! Great photos Ann!

Ginny said...

That last picture is quite stunning. It is the first time I have seen a man with tail feathers!

I am wondering how you got to this weekend and what is it for?

Meaning what is supposed to happen?

I liked the costumes and tail feathers.

Just wondering...

What a great ceremony and for such a good cause. Did you hear about the water walkers who walked a pail of water across America from various water sources and then melted them into the Great Lakes, MI (I think) but you can find Water Walk on Google or Facebook...

If you're interested about reading my one and only Powwow experience, please feel free to look at my post from last April. I had a BLAST!

Sorry it was so hot for you all, Ann... I would be like you---standing under the trees. I cannot stand the heat now.

BUT--you did get some great pictures of the Native Americans. Thanks!
Hugs,
Betsy

Ann, it looks like it would have been a REALLY interesting event. I love the last pic, of the little boy. It has such a neat, artistic quality to it! Did you plan it that way? That's awesome!

Love the pretty feathers but I gotta say...the dead animal on the man's head is kinda creeping me out!

Duni said...

The traditional costumes are amazing!

Pat said...

Thanks for all the pictures - yesterday and today's!
What a wonderful event to watch. How I wish I could have seen it in real life - but you've given me the next best thing. Thank you! xx

Oh my, what a time Duke would have with those tail feathers...

Grampy said...

Great pictures Ann. But I am afraid you might be in trouble. Either you are going to be attacked or it is going to rain on you. I believe I saw a rain dance and a war dance.LOL

Great costumes, it would be tough in the heat.

This past weekend we went out to eat and there was a large party celebrating a couple's 45th anniversary. They had an Indian dancer--it was really interesting to hear and see.

I'm loving these photos. Would truly to like to attend something like this.

(How did I miss this yesterday? It showed up in my reader as new on Wednesday??? I hate Blogger - I hate Google! )

Jean said...
