Celebration



















It was, perhaps, the most impressive cultural event I have attended. We were in Seattle the weekend of the Annual Seafair Indian Days Powwow which was held in Discovery Park.

The handout we were given at the park entrance describes a powwow as, "...an intertribal gathering of song, dance and culture for Native Peoples of North America."

The top picture shows Indians in full regalia dancing to the drum beat and chanting of Indians in the first picture below.

We were there for the opening ceremony and the grand entry of Indians dressed like the man in the second picture below.

We ate salmon that was grilled on a wood-fired open pit as shown in the bottom picture.

It was a great event that I'm happy to have attended.

Return here on Saturday, July 29 for an update.

Have a good day!
