 Catching their motion in low light was challenging but I am quite happy with the results.

Your photos are just stunning! Especially I love the last one where the motion and cosutume are flowing like a stream. So mysterious!
I am amazed with their unique culture! I hope to visit to see their gathering one day.
Best wishes,

I so wish I could have been there ! Perhaps a little more colourful than 150 years ago but no less spectacular.
Thank you for taking us along.

I love how you captured the motion!!

Carly said...

wow, I love the colors!

Jim said...

I love your Indian pictures. Those costumes are great. The older ones are expensive now as they were made with some lost arts.

Rebecca has some for her part of the country (Pa.) too. Is it something national that I missed?
Happy MidWeek Blues,

Wonderful captures Carolyn!
These images of a younger generation really speak to me and my Native American Heritage.
Love the last shot in motion!

Woody said...

The native Indians have such a colorful heritage and it's great to see the youth involved so it is not lost.
