I do go to local pow-wows besides going to ones that are far away. It’s always interesting to see how different groups do these. I quit going to Denver March pow-wow because there is no place to sit down, although it is fun to see what the various vendors are flogging. Although the weather was fine, this pow-wow was held indoors and was rather noisy.
Here’s a nice shot that shows the contrast between dance costumes and street wear.
The wolf rescue people were there and they walked a wolf around in the crowd. This girl was trying to get a selfie with the wolf, and he was not having it, so he refused to pose.
It’s nice that people are trying to keep the traditions alive, but it’s sad that this is divorced from everyday life.
