Photographer's Note

A Ladies Shawl Dancer at the 10th Annual Pow Wow in the Pines at the Hon-dah Casino & Resort.

The legend behind the Shawl Dance is of a butterfly that lost her mate in battle. Grieving, she went into her cocoon (shawl) and traveled the world over, stepping on each stone until she found beauty in one and was able to begin her life anew. The Shawl Dance is noted for its fancy footwork and fluid movements. *Description from the 21st Annual ASU Spring Contest Pow Wow program*

The image was resized and sharpened (more).
