This was my first Powwow the photos say it all…color, pattern, texture, layers and movement.
I’m not sure what the equivalent would be in the non native world. But it struck me that this was probably a main activity and it was for the whole family. Children were not excluded or separated there were competitions of age groups but the main events were honoring the elderly, veterans and the children. I didn’t stay the whole time but the couple hours I was there I didn’t witness Indians threatening their children for bad behavior….Johnny Stop it! Or we’re going to the car right now and you won’t get a cookie!!! Not a single melt down tantrum. It was interesting. There are lots of Powwows in this area and I will try to make it to the Rodeo/Powwow at the Crow Agency.
This is the research library at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. Its still a work in progress I can’t wait to see it finished.
These are some “lesser” Frederic Remington paintings. It is interesting to see the unfinished ones…
This is a new exhibition at the Buffalo Bill Cody Historical Center….mean lookin’ spurs…
These are some of the costumes from Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show….
Gotta love a man who is man enough to wear pink embroidered flowers on his shirt!
This was the interactive section a wall of hats to try on! Harder than it looks to take photos of myself!
