Native American Regalia at Dokis First Nations Pow-wow, 2012
There is not much I really want to write along these photographs because I would like them to speak for themselves.
I took these photos at Dokis First Nations Pow-wow, which takes place every year on July 1st. This year was my third year in a row attending and I must say the Pow-wow there is getting better and better by the year. Or at least this is my impression.
I spent roughly a week there but the festivities only happen for two days. That is when all the beautiful regalia is brought-out and the dancing, drumming and all take place. Personally, I love the colours, the bead work, all the details ... phenomenal, in my opinion.
I am always grateful to be invited to the Dokis Pow-wow and happy that I can get away with all the photos that I shoot. Everyone there is incredibly cheerful and kind!
I do wish people will enjoy the photographs and I will write a more in depth piece on the actual Pow-wow itself. I have countless more photographs as well. All in good time.
Thank You for the visit.
