Pow wow

I went to see a friend dance tonight at the Lakehead University Native Student Association Pow Wow. A lot of people turned up. It was noisy and busy. Once the drums started, the energy in the room kicked up even further! Young and old, the whole place seemed alive to the Spirit. I have to say, the call of the drum was infectious! After the 3rd set of drummers, I felt like trying a few spins myself...but I was terribly under-dressed in my jeans. And I think moccasins or some other soft soled footwear would help with footwork, and I definitely need some pointers on the steps! I hope these photos have captured a sense of the dynamic energy and colour of the dancers heeding the call of the drum.
