I was watching the Pine Ridge Pow Wow and others, it took my breath away to see so many dancers how many there were and how beautiful. There are hundreds of dancers, someday I would like to see Mendota that big.
For now, we are a small Traditional Wacipi / Pow Wow.
Missing so many who have gone in the spirit world, always good to see them dancing, we will always remember them. They are always dancing with us any time we dance.
More information on the Mendota Pow Wow as the months go by.
Stay safe and healthy!!!!
