Our photographer friend Emilia Gaston was able to attend the 52nd Annual National Championship Indian Pow Wow in Grand Prairie, Texas recently and enjoyed the sights and sounds. She describes a little bit about the event below:

“It was pretty hot, which was surprising since we had gotten a cold front last week. As soon as the evening hit, a nice breeze came through, which I'm sure the dancers were happy to have… This particular pow wow has some loyal attendees, as many dancers and vendors I spoke with (from out of town) make it a point to come to this pow wow every year if they come to Texas at all.”
