I have always been fascinated with Native American history, traditions, culture, etc. I use to read books on the different tribes that existed all over our country and could forever look at pictures of the costumes and dress that were worn by these proud people. I taught myself how to bead woven bracelets as a young teenager from books about Indian beading. And whenever there is any type of documentary about Native Americans, I’m sitting in front of the t.v. completely enthralled with all the facts, visuals, and narration.
So last month when the opportunity came to attend the American Indian Festival held here in town, I grabbed my camera and took off with my son and daughter to experience the sights and sounds and abundant color of the original people of our country.
