The local Tribe holds the celebration once a year, and many tribe members from all over the midwest come and participate.

To think of the hours that their community spent making their traditional dresses was unbelievable...


Have any of you ever been to a Pow Wow?

Such a beautiful image! Yes, I have been. My cousins are Navajo so I had an opportunity to attend one once. It was amazing! Although I did get in trouble for snapping a few photos of the crown dancers! opps. Totally worth it!

Love, Jamie Herzlinger
