Week 45: ( picture this )
Yes, it is me, sporting my very new umbrella. Yet another rainy Saturday weekend as well. So much so, that I did not attend this years Indian Powwow. Was up and at em this morning, but the rains came, and it was going to be my moms first powwow. We made the decision to not go, since it is far south and we did not want to get trapped in case it started to flood, since the past two weekends have been nothing but flooding. Better safe, than sorry. There is always next year; if it is to be. A bummer indeed, but it’s life.
As I sit here thinking about the spectacular event that went on yesterday at the Toney Burger center, it reminds me that I am so blessed to be able to see different cultures and learn about their way of life. So yesterday was the 22nd Austin Indian Powwow. They have one every year, which is awesome, I learned something new, now that I know I will most likely put that on my calendar for next year. Hopefully next time my mom can attend, and I will have a better camera to take photos with, yes, still working on that as well. Anyway it was a beautiful day, left early to get there before it started, since it was in South Austin, and the bus ride was a long one. Got there before the event started, so got a pretty good seat. They started out with drumming and the opening where all the Indian tribes came in, it was amazingly beautiful.
They gave us details of the clothing and what it symbolized, they danced and sung and told amazing stories through the dancing and singing. it was a great time had, and I am really glad that I found this, and went. Art, culture, and photos. I love Austin.
Here I share some of the photos I took, hope you enjoy them.
Yes, I know it is a lot of photos, but from the many I took, I like these shots the best. Anyway, enjoy, and until the next photo adventure.
