Odawa Powwow

The Odawa Powwow is on this weekend (May 27-29). Just after the grand entry, it started to rain again.

Most of the dancers took shelter under the various tents, but a few hardy dancers, including one little fellow (age 28 months!) just kept right on dancing. Unfortunately, it was raining too hard to do much photo taking. I got a few shots, as well as two videos of the little boy dancing.

He was so good and so anxious to make a good showing.... I hope he wins a prize tomorrow.

There are a number of catagories of dancers at powwows.
Traditional: The ones wearing turkey feathers and more subdued costumes

Fancy: Wearing more brightly colored costumes with streamers and satins

Jingle: Women and girls wearing dresses covered in tin"jingles" which rattle as they dance

Shawl: Women and girls in beaded abd satin costumes, carrying a shawl over one arm and an eagle-feather fan in the other.
