POW WOW

This past summer, I had the pleasure of attending and shooting the Kootenai Pow Wow in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Tribes from across the Northern United States and Canada were represented. The event included dance competitions with both traditional and contemporary dances.

The pow wow regalia was an amazing feast for the eyes and the drumming, singing, and dancing held me spellbound. There is something so hypnotic about witnessing this type of cultural tradition. It has a way of transporting you back in time to a place where spiritual connection to the earth was an integral part of one's existence, where dancer, music and Spirit become one.

All images and video in this series were shot and edited with an iPhone.
