Our friend Charlie Ballard hit the pow wow trail again and attended the 43rd Annual Stanford Pow Wow this past weekend. The Stanford Pow Wow is one of the largest student-run pow wows in the United States.

It looks like he had a lot of fun taking in the sights, the sounds and the frybread! Check out some of his videos below:

Interview with Southern Emcee Tom Phillips. He has the perfect emcee voice!


Grand Entry!



You can't go to a pow wow without getting your NDN taco. Mmmm. Is it lunch time yet?


Interview with Lee's Concessions. Need to keep your energy up for all that dancing!

Charlie found a first time Stanford Pow Wow attendee all the way from Saskatchewan. I hope she had a great time.

I wonder who rolled up in this car? Great plate!


And now for the drums!

This was my very first pow wow about 35 years ago. Sure has come up in the world. Am still wearing a beautiful ring made by a young Navaho girl. They had great vendors!
