91 Photos to Celebrate the 98th Annual Crow Fair

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 27th, 2016 Last Updated on: September 27th, 2016

Each summer, the Crow Fair Celebration draws more than 50,000 spectators and participants to Crow Agency, Montana. The Crow Fair is the largest Native American event in Montana, and one of the biggest powwows in the country. Besides the pow wow and rodeo, you'll catch a festive parade winding its way through the campsites each morning. People of all ages participate in the parade, with a lot riding on horseback with traditional saddles.

Photographer Tina Pelletier, a member of the Pasqua First Nation and Métis community of Ste. Madelaine, was at the Crow Fair to capture some lovely images from the parade and pow wow. So take a look at the gallery below and see if you don't feel like you had a front row seat to the parade!

Great photos Tina! Tina Pelletier serves as a communications specialist and photographer for the Prince Albert Grand Council, one of the largest tribal councils in Canada. Tina has undergraduate degrees in Indigenous Studies and Journalism, as well as a Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication.
