Native American Indian Dancers

There was much going on at
Historic Fallsington Day 
this year.

I enjoyed the team of 
Native American Indian Dancers.

Below is an national dance competition winner.
He is quite good.

Their regalia,
with all the handworked beading,
is just beautiful.

I am glad an effort is being made locally to preserve
this aspect of American history.

    your post is fabulous...love love love the detail!!!

  3. Their clothing is amazing, great colors!

  4. What beautiful pictures. You really did a good job. My favorite is of the boy that won the national competition. I believe I saw him perform here in Bakersfield during our annual Pow Wow Days. If not then this is his twin!

    I agree wholeheartedly with you that about the effort being made to preserve this important part of America's history! Love the whole post!

  5. Beautiful pictures, I love them all. A real treat with these beautiful colors.

  6. Great pictures, Rebecca. Having lived in both Oklahoma and Arizona, I'm not new to Native American dancers but I am new to photographing them. The photo of the woman with the sunglasses is my favorite.

  7. the faces are lovely
    and I really like the composition of the top shot

  8. Oh wow, beautiful! I really like the portraits, so natural and nice.

  9. I love those Indian costumes!

    PBS History program had a show tonight about the Indians of the late 1800's and early 1900's. One thing told was how the making of those costumes is a lost art which makes the older ones still in existence very valuable.

    I am glad you showed these.
    Happy MidWeek Blues, Rebecca.

  10. Rebecca, this was wonderful. I have several jewelry pieces and belts from the native culture that are amazing.
    The beadwork astounds me and of course, dance~

  13. I love these shots! You captured the essence of the dancers wonderfully.
    I'm proud to say I have some Native American Heritage in my family line and these smiling faces are a joy to my heart.
    Love the bokeh going on in that third image!
