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.
