Ready for the Dance ~ One of the great parts of the pow wow is just before the grand entry into the dance and ceremonial test, when all of the dancer arrive, waiting to go in with their groups for certain dances.
The Dancer's Hands ~ One of my favorite dances is the Fancy Shawl Dance. I love seeing the women line up to start into the tent, all with their beautiful fringed and decorated shawls. I noticed this one with her many rings on her fingers, and zoomed in on her hands.
Dancing into the Sun ~ This beautiful woman used her feather fan to shade her face from the sun, which was very hot and bright. The fan is part of the traditional accessories for this particular tribe and dance.
