Wow, has it really been a year since the last pow wow? It seems like just yesterday that we were sharing these beautiful photos from Texas-based professional photographer Emilia Gaston. Time flies when you're having fun on the pow wow trail! Emilia was able to attend this Grand Prairie, Texas pow wow and share with you a little about the event and of course her wonderful collection of photos. Here she is in her own words:
The chance of rain and resulting humidity didn't stop a crowd of thousands from coming out to Trader's Village in Grand Prairie this past weekend, for the 53rd Annual American Indian Powwow. The three-day event hosted dancers from several dozen nations who competed for prizes and danced for exhibition alike. From tiny tots to golden age and everything in between, the dancers represented the rich traditions and modern advances within the powwow culture, all available for the public's enjoyment. Onlookers were seen taking in the sights of the beautiful regalia and the deep sounds of the southern drum, as the event stretched from morning to night.
It sounds like the pow wow went well and everyone enjoyed the sights and the sounds! Thank you again for sharing your work with us Emilia! For more information on her photography, please visit http://www.emiliagastonphotography.com/.
