Takaji (Greetings) My Relatives
It was a beautiful two days of proud celebration of our Indigenous heritage up on top of the hill at the SINGING WINDS SITE of the COUNCIL OF THREE RIVERS AMERICAN INDIAN CENTER.
Dancers from all over the country again participated in competition dance on both Saturday and Sunday, and the weather co-operated with a gorgeous day on Saturday and only a little bit of rain eary in the afternoon on Sunday followed with an almost miraculous clearing of the sky later in the afternoon.
I set up a modest vendors booth for the first time this year in behalf of our CANEY INDIGENOUS SPIRITUAL CIRCLE selling traditional hand-woven Guatemalan Mayan fabrics, some native-themed manufactured home decore crafts and a full line of Joseph Amahura's Taino-Cherokee-made natural body care product line NATIVE TOUCH.
I was joined at our booth by our family friend the fancy dancer Suzy Hall who was selling her hand-crafted beaded and ribbon earings.
I didnt get to dance as much as I have in the past (I'm not really a great pow wow dancer anyway lol) and now I know how Leni (my wife) feels having to attend to a responsibility all day long on both days of the pow wow. She stands and cooks fry bread throughout the whole weekend with few breaks. You can say the same thing for my friend Russ Simms the excecutive director of the center who likewise spends the whole weekend busy making sure that the food vending and other details of the event come off without a hitch along with Michael, his son, and all the rest of the volunteer staff, bless them all!
Another great pow wow weekend folks. See you all again next year for number 35!
