Happy Sunday from Bismarck! I’ve got my new laptop with me and it’s great to be back on the blog. This weekend we’re attending the 43rd Annual United Tribes International Powwow, which has been an amazing experience. I’m working on a new blog post with our stories from the Powwow, but thought I’d whet your appetite first by sharing some photos with you today.
We spent nearly all of Saturday at the Powwow, and we’ll return again today for a few hours before heading home to Fargo. This is our first powwow experience, and I hardly know where to begin. The best way I can describe it is as an extraordinary journey of the senses: Our minds are chock-full with new sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touches…wonderful images that will last in our memories for years to come.
However, it’s actually very early on Sunday morning right now, and I need to get some shut-eye before another big day at the Powwow. I just hope that the beating drums in my head will settle down so that I can fall asleep! In the meantime I invite you to click HERE or on the photo below to view more sights from our day.
Have you ever been to this, or any, powwow? What did you think? We’d love to hear your stories, too, so please feel free to share in the comments section below. Have a wonderful day, and we hope to see you out on the Prairie!
