don’t know if I am getting to be a hard core pow wow indian but I stayed until the last song on opening night. and last night we stayed until 1:30. again til the last song.
so far it has been a real good pow wow. our tribe offers righteous prize money therefore we draw some of the best singers and dancers. we get a good show for our money.
we took our chairs over mid Friday bout 11 o clock. we set them up on what is the front row of the arena. nobody sat in front of us to block our view of the dancing.
I took advantage of the good viewing location to take pictures with my Nikon and record dancing with my cell phone. I know I got some good pictures and footage. photography is one of my hobbies. i wanted good pow wow pictures to use on my blog site here. i use them a lot.
I am trying to stay away from greasy foods but I did have some fry bread. i don’t eat it often. there is always a stand that makes fresh squeezed lemonade. had to have a large cup of strawberry lemonade since i avoid pop. there is a migo wagon that makes the best soft tacos with steak, onion and cilantro. i look for their stand every year.
i also try to stay away from cigars. but i thought what the hell its pow wow time. i smoked a few cheap cigars while watching the indians watch the indians. i didn’t take my Cuban cigar though. i will kick back sometime and savor that one. then i will stay off cigars again until the next special occasion.
I found some brass and silver metal conchos at one stand. I use them to make porcupine hair rosettes. you don’t see rosettes made like that very often. I will make a bunch of them. I sold a pair of them at our gathering. if I had more maybe I could have sold them too. i also found some eagle feather decals to pimp out my riding mower.
I was asked about roaches. I quoted some prices and said I also consider trades. I was asked like trades for what. I said whatever people make like tanned hides, pow wow outfits (thinking of for Samuel), beadwork, moccasins, ribbon shirts or whatever.
i was tired last night after staying there until 1:30 in the morning. ol misho is usually asleep by then. i decided to stay home today. it rained last night. don’t know what that will do to the arena. anyway i seen enough pow wow. i gotta catch up on work at home today. it was a real good pow wow for me.
