Pechanga Pow Wow 7/04/09

Went to the Pechenga Pow Wow for the 4th. Never been to a Pow Wow before. I thought it was pretty cool. I was in search for a sweet set of moccasins but could not find anything that suited me well. The one pair with custom beadwork were well over $245.00 which is understandable, just not in my future. There was some sweet Regalia there though, as well as some delicious fry bread and tacos. You cannot go wrong with fry bread! Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos of the regalia for fear of disrespecting anyone... I didn't realize there were some unspoken rules for photographers at pow wows. Once the fireworks started, I fired up the slr and went to work. The show was one of the best I have ever witnessed. We could literally feel the firework explosions rip through the air. The finale was nearly 2 minutes long. Here are a couple of photos...

If you had asked I could have told you that there are rules. Depends on the Nation and which dance their regalia is for. But for the most part it is no photos allowed.

Have you looked into Minnetonka? If you want beadwork, you design it or pick one out of my catalog and I can do the beadwork. Let me know.
