Posted By Toyacoyah Brown August 2nd, 2016 Last Updated on: August 3rd, 2016

With the cancellation of the 2015 Julyamsh, everyone was left wondering if the pow wow would ever come back. After looking into new venues, the tribal council gave its approval for its new location at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds in Coeur d´Alene, Idaho.

Head Staff for the 2016 pow wow included:

Host Drum: Bear Creek, Sault Ste Marie
Master of Ceremonies: Quanah Matheson, Coeur d´Alene and Howie Thompson, Carry the Kettle
Head Man Dancer: Kyle Davis, Coeur d´Alene
Head Woman Dancer: Jordyn Nomee, Coeur d´Alene
Arena Directors: Michael Roberts, Choctaw/Chickasaw and Jonathon Nomee, Coeur d´Alene
Head Woman Judge: Tiny Rosales, Turtle Band of Chippewa
Head Man Judge: Pat Armstrong, Blackfeet/Cree
Drum Coordinator: Sheldon Shebala, Navajo

Our photographer friend Patti Tanewasha was able to hit up the pow wow and brought back some lovely images to share with you all.

Those looked beautiful Patti!

You might remember we shared her photos from the 50th Annual Kainai Pow Wow & Celebration last week. While in Canada she had her camera bag stolen. Inside her bag were several lenses, 3 memory cards, and her car keys. Luckily with the help of friends and pow wow family, she was able to get home safely. But now she is without her camera, which as you can tell from her phtogoraphy skills is a great loss! If you have any extra money laying around, please consider donating to her GoFundMe page to help her get back some of her gear. You can learn more by visiting: https://www.gofundme.com/6ia6mk.

Patti has some other lovely photos on her Instagram account, so make sure you follow IG: @MakingItPatti
