Native American POW WOW

Traders Village - Houston, TX
The Native American Pow Wow at Traders Village is being held this weekend. We went today and watched the dance competitions.

There is a significant amount of work that goes into the making and putting together of each costume.  As you can see they are very colorful and of course each costume has a specific meaning.

The organizers started the Tribal Dance competition with the toddlers (2-4 year olds). The toddler dancers were so good that a winner could not be chosen and all were given First Place :) The drums are moving to hear with the 1,  2, rhythmic beat and a couple of haunting tunes were played by a flute player from Okhaloma.
