Image captured at the Last Chance Pow Wow (Helena, Mt, U.S.A.) last fall. As it is about the last of the season, this pow wow has been held inside at our civic center. These beaded dresses were among the most amazing of the beautiful plains indian garb I spotted at this 2 day event.

    This is wonderful! I love Native American Anything! I wish we had our annual Indian Pow Wow indoors. It’s held outdoors during the summer when the weather here is 90º or higher!
