Powwow

The steady rhythm of drums and bells echoed through the gymnasium for the New faces of an ancient people 11th Annual Traditional American Indian Powwow.  The event which draws folks from across the country with representatives from many tribes celebrated this year with an extra level of enthusiasm despite the fear that it will be the last year here in State College.

Powwow

Every year State College hosts the New Faces of an Ancient People Traditional American Indian Powwow.   I’ve seen photos from the event numerous times, but for the first time I got to experience the bright colors and steady beat of drums and bells.  The energy in the dancing arena was fun to capture with ages ranging from babies to their elders.
