I Have Found My Inspiration

Welcome Dance


Inter-Tribal Dance

Couple getting ready for the dacing - I love the man's design. The "jingle dress" is made from the tops and bottoms of snuff cans!


Fancy Dance Regalia






We are back from our day at the wild animal refuge. I have some pics of the animals themselves, but they are mostly through cage wire. The Indians, on the other hand, were beautiful to photograph as they danced freely.

Who would not be inspired by this beautiful regalia? The last three shots are of a woman's "Fancy Regalia" which included the beautiful fringed shawl. Oh, I forsee a choker in aqua and purple in the near future!

Oh - and then there was this little dancer who was just too cute to leave out!
