One thought on “Ben Calf Robe Traditional Pow Wow Grand Entry

  1. Ahnee beautiful aboriginals!
    I am but four hours away, this is the best powwow in Alberta! It’s not too often there is smiles on every face around you! All one can hear is laughter and drumbeats! To be honest, the only time you see a tear is on a person’s face that is biting their lip and smiling as their beautiful child dances in their first song with their arms as wide as an eagle in the blue sky! Now that’s beautiful, and is exactly why this powwow is worth every minute! Smiles and happiness!

    To all the drum beats and feet tapping, thank you! Miigwetch!
