My tribe does not have powwows that I am aware of. Since my ggrandparents would have nothing to do with indigenous ancestry, I am learning. They have prayer ceremonies.
The powwows I have seen in OH and IA are less a ceremony and more of something for the paying audience. The Lakota powwows are different. They are usually sponsored by a family for a purpose, i.e. we went to one that was to celebrate the end of their daughter's reign as powwow princess. You can dance in the OH and IA ones, at least during the intertribals. The Lakota one - I don't think so. It was a family/tribal affair. Their intertribals were more for bringing out the non-competition and/or dancers who had not claimed a specific dance as their own, plus those who had.

More marmot shots. We found him when we went off the paved roads in Custer. He was not afraid of us. I kept talking to him and shooting images, although Kevin got the first ones and the last ones. It was more like he was annoyed that we were interrupting his lunch.

You got wonderful photos of a creature we dont see very often. I can't wait to visit the area of the Lakota Sioux and hopefully find some ancestreal info. Thank you both again for your spirit of volunteerism.
