The Pow Wow

Over 6,000 visitors helped celebrate the mission of MSF SOARRING, (AN ACRONYM FOR "Save Our
Ancestors Remains and Resources Indigenous Network Group)Native Americans.

Imagine bold and nature inspired costumes, of all colors. Long and streaming ribbons waved and small bells jingled as the families did their traditional dances. Their costumes of deep rich purples, bright oranges, neon yellow, bold reds and green radiated and made the up-beat performance an enjoyable experience.

Many of the Native American burial grounds and scacred land are in danger of being developed commercially. The Illinois, Ojibwe, and Miami tribes are fighting to hold on to sacred land and preserve the environment.

A special thanks to my Indian friends, who gave me the opportunity to take these pictures.
