Default More Pow Wow #2

These are the two main characters of the show. They were very funny but, also informed on Indian culture. After the show I asked if they would letme tack a photo of them and the were willing.
The guy on the left is a Creek and the guy on the right is Comanche.
this is his happy face!



Squaw lady was happy to comply and a really pleasant Lady.




A few more dancers and there costumes.








That's all for tonight, I'll post some more tomorrow.

Looks like a great afternoon, GW. Your photos give me a good feel for what the event was like.

Very interesting, and it's neat that someone is taking the time and energy (and money if those costumes are any indication) of preserving some history and heritage. A wonderful opportunity to take pictures, too.

LOL, this is the second time recently that the two of you replied to one of my post and it just struck me kind of funny, if I didn't know better, I'd think you two were in cahoots.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, its neat. Some of the people that are into this are natives and some aren't. Once you start studying the native culture it becomes quite addicting, and like you say, some serious money is involved! just an example... the photo below shows a couple brest plates hanging on the back wall of a booth (
sorry for the poor photo, I took it only for a reference and wasn't planning on showing it) they had price tags for $350!


The two Indians in the first photo put on a show that was quite educational about the different cultures, how they lived, worked, hunted and the weapons and tools they had.

Same as the other thread - guess for me it must be something to do with the server where they are located.

I follow your Pow Wow series and just didn't posted a reply, sorry. I like the images, lot's of them are not the "cheeese-still-shots" people usually do and that's great.

I especially like the creek dancer in the first image and the squaw and then of course #4 /thumbsup.

Thanks for sharing all these.

Th.
