Native American Powwow

Debbie happen to be reading through one of those free ad papers and found a blurb for a Native American Powwow not too far from here. We both had Saturday off, and we didn't feel like more yard work, so off we went:

These three girls had been named princesses at other powwows for work they do in the Native American community.

Some of the regalia. Love the blending of western and Native American.

More regalia.

This little guy was having a blast running around behind his dad.

The only time we could get a pic of this guy that wasn't blurry was during a break between songs.

The Head Woman Dancer and the Head Man Dancer and his son.

The guy in the shorts on the left was still going strong after a couple hours of dancing; the Native American version of Tony and Leo Boris?

The regalia was awesome, but I can't imagine wearing all that in Florida, never mind dancing around in it for hours.
This little guy just stole the show. You could hear the Awe's and OMG's follow him around the circle:

I could have sat and listened to the music all day. Unfortunately, the weather seemed to have other ideas. Everyone shrugged off the first couple rain showers, but when the lightening started, the organizers pulled the plug. By then we were pretty well drenched anyway, so we called it a day.
