I had a terrible crush on Hiawatha back in the day.
I had a Hiawatha book,
and knew this little chant about him.
So, of course, I did some light study in Native American Culture!
When I found out there was a Powwow in town,
I had to go. And Colton was even visiting!
Here's a few sweet pics...
|The Silversmith. Colton bought me a lovely ring, and her husband polished it up to a gleaming shine, like her smile!|
|The Wolves. I'm not sure how I feel about this ethically speaking, but it was still pretty cool to see them up close.|
|Maybe my favorite.|
|I think I would sortof love dressing up in this garb.|
|Hair wrapping!!! When I was about twelve, I bought one of those little gizmos that's supposed to make hair wraps, but it never really worked. Ps, check out the bokeh on this one! Gorgeous.|
|Reportedly, her dog can dance with the best of them.|
|So fierce :)|
|I love this guy! What a weird combination of Hippie and Native American. You should have seen their van.|
|And his wife. They have a facebook page for their crafts, apparently... If I find it, I'll be sure to post a link.|
|A Gem of a Family.|
