Last evening we headed over to the Pow wow. We got there just in time to scarf down some homemade French Fries, cheese curds and a hamburger before the Grand Entry.
Just before the Grand Entry is a sacred peace pipe ceremony. It is not photographed.
The Grand Entry begins with the eagle staffs, then the flags, followed by the royalty. The men enter next followed by younger men and older children. Women and small children encircle the men and soon everyone has entered and they are all dancing around the circle.
Traditional men’s regalia with a feather bustle.
My favorite regalia this year was this simple oh so soft looking buckskin dress. This older lady is carrying her eagle feathers in her right hand and carries her buckskin beaded bag on her left arm.
This is one of the littlest Jingle Dress dancers. She is our friend Edith’s Granddaughter.
We came home right after the Grand Entry. It was a nice evening..two date nights this week:)
