I had the honor of being the official photographer for the Colorado River Indian Tribes Native American Days Fair and Expo this year. It was four days of packed, back-to-back events! I have so many photos from the fair, shinney games, tug of war, horseshoe and the pageant just to name a few.
What really caught my attention was the Friday and Saturday night pow wows. It was a beautiful display of tradition, culture and oh my… the colors!! The swirling, the dancing, the rhythm, it’s mesmerizing to watch really. On the way home I could still feel the beat in my bones. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a pow wow, I highly recommend it.
Since John was not able to attend I opted to share this 4 day experience with a couple of local amateur photographers and had fun talking shop in between events. Thanks to you both, let’s do this again soon!
