A native American Indian performing traditional song and dance at Knotts Berry Farm. I believe he said his father is the chief of his tribe from Kansas. There are about 562 different native American Indian tribes in the U.S.
Knotts Berry Farm honors the American Indians and allows three gift shops to sell the handicrafts of the tribal Indians from jewelry and rugs to katchina dolls and pottery among other things.

Nice capture of this Native American playing his musical instrument. I do enjoy visiting Native American reservations around Las Vegas. They have Pow-Wow (I like the food also) every year about 15 miles north of Las Vegas. Well done, tfs.

A beautiful portrait keeping the traditon alive and full concentration on his face. Exposure control, color & contrast are fine, and the description adds to the picture as well. Compositionally this does not work I am afraid, it's too central without sufficient dead space ahead of him and the intense spot warm light is somehow distracting, pulling the attention away from his facial features. Hopefully my sincere comments is of help, Congrats
