Orlando “O.B.” Begay had the honor of being head man dancer at the Haskell Welcome Back Pow Wow this past weekend. He expressed his sincere gratitude of the honor on his Facebook page after the event.

“Saturday night was truly a beautiful experience. Good vibes. Big crowd. It was an honor to have been head man dancer for Haskell. A school that is special to so many people all across Indian country. Thankful to represent my family and our native people. My chicken special went smoothly and I'm grateful for those who danced in my special and for the the drum group, Hay Maker, for jammin for us. Thank you all for the support, encouragement, and opportunity. Aho!”

Marcy Frank captured the special moments on video for all of us to enjoy!

Why the chicken fight?….the chicken dance was from the PRAIRIE CHICKEN MATING DANCE….NOT ‘BARNYARD CHICKENS’…DUMB ASSES
