This past weekend I spent at the 40th annual Dartmouth Mothers Day Pow-wow, which is special to me. Native people come from all over North America for this pow-wow and spent two beautiful sunny days drumming, singing, dancing and enjoying each others company after a long winter.
The scent of sage filled the air along with the sights and sound of the pow-wow, I felt a connection to the Earthmother, the Sky and the Spirit of the pow wow .
All these images are just some of my impressions of the pow-wow which I hope do honor to the native people that I photographed and I thank all of them for the honor of allowing me to photograph them.
I also did some video but need to figure out how to edit video so I can process it ....someday maybe.
Thanks for checking in to my blog!
