Gathering of Nations Pow Wow 2010

Evangeline Chavez 2010


 

Gathering of Nations Pow Wow will be  held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, April 28-30, 2011. Over 3,000 dancers will be streaming in to the sounds of hundreds of drums beating simultaneously. There is truly nothing like it – with the area slowing filling up with dancers dressed in their colorful, ornate regalia and the beating drums stirring up the soul. I viewed golden age, juniors, teens and tiny tots, dance  in competition.

AHO, Wa-Do, Hiy-hiy! (thank you!)
