A Beautiful Weekend with dancing and food and great music

Oh what a wonderful weekend I had. I was invited to go the the 2011 Siletz Indian Pow Wow. It was wonderful and the location in Siletz, Oregon is beautiful in itself. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the feelings of all the warmth of the many different tribes gathered together just surrounded you. The youth of the many nations really show such respect of the elders and was so heart warming when I was down photographing some of the dancers and a young man came up to me and asked me if there was anything he could get for me. He didn't know me from Eve but it is obvious that I was of the elder age group and he was honoring me in asking. I was truly touched by this.
I took gobs of photos, 170 some to be exact but I have posted 124 of them on my Facebook page. You are all welcome to see them if you go there.
                             Just go toJan Mackay  on Facebook and and you can browse the photos I took. This is just a sampling.
