Our good friend Paula Schultz is busy hitting the pow wow trail this year. She recently attended the Paradise Pow Wow and captured some lovely photos. Here's what she had to say about the pow wow.

The Annual Paradise Pow Wow was held July 12th & 13th, 2014 at the Gold Nugget Museum in Paradise, California. The Pow Wow was first held in 1966 and attracts approximately 2,000 visitors each year and continues to be offered free to the public. The Pow Wow consists of Native American displays, vendors, food booths & activities.

All proceeds from the Pow Wow go to the Katie Marie Prosser Memorial Scholarship Fund, for Native American students pursuing a career in the medical field at Butte College or CSUC.

The committee works hard to educate the community on Native culture & tradition through Drum, Song & Dance, keeping these important Native American Traditions alive.

And in case you've missed her previous work on our website, here’s a bit more about Paula:

Photo-Artist Paula Schultz, noted for capturing imagery of the beautiful scenic areas of Northern California and Southern Oregon, has had her exceptional award-winning images published in many national and international magazines, calendars and websites.

Her photos have recently been the 1st place winner in Cowboys and Indians Magazine, graced the cover of Outdoor California, published in Indian Country Today (NY), Pow Wows.com, and in addition, she was the featured photographer in Southern Oregon magazine (Readers Choice 2014).

Paula’s exciting images of dancers’ movements frozen in time, not necessarily of the dancers in total, but specific sights: mocassined feet, swirling fringed shawls, elaborately colored bead and appliqued work, and brightly colored feathers, are of special interest.

Paula enjoys capturing images at special occasions, festivals and community events. Because of her dedication to her art and her demonstrated sensitivity to the Native communities, Paula has been asked to be the Staff Photographer for both the Oroville and Paradise Pow Wow Committees.

Her beautiful and creative photographic images will soon be available as note cards and postcards.

Thanks again Paula for sharing your work with us. Please visit her website Paula’s Photo Art for more great photos.

I would love to know and embrace more of my native heritage to pass on to my daughters and son. Growing up my grandmother always told me to never say I was native american indian for fear of being placed on a reservation. I just don’t know where to start. I have stories that my grandparents passed on. My own parents seem to have a shame about being native. I on the other hand, am always willing to learn more. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Being Cherokee IS the benefit. If you are searching only to receive benefits, stop your search.
