Photographer's Note

The contemporary Pow Wow is a link to the past that helps maintain Native American heritage. Seen by outsiders as entertainment due to the singing, dancing and colorful regalia, the Pow Wow is a spiritual legacy which should be treated with respect and honor. It is a time for Native American families to be together with other family members and friends. It is a time of sharing, of laughter and tears, of learning, and of caring. It is a time when Native Americans reflect on their traditions. It is a time to honor the past and celebrate the future.

This boy and girl were competing in the Tiny Tots dance - for children 5 and under. Despite appearances, they weren't together. The "hand holding" is an effect of the telephoto lense.

The image was cropped, brightened, contrast increased and sharpened.
