It is a sad fact that pow wow season has come and gone, but the memories and celebratory feelings experienced over 2016 are sure to last a lifetime. As we make our way into the holiday season, we won’t have to leave our memories too far behind because of some beautiful images here.
The first set of images are from the Richmond American Indian Pow Wow, which was held on November 11 – 13, 2016 at the Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, VA. According to event organizer Barry Richardson (Haliwa Saponi,) the pow wow has been running strong for 35 years.
The second set of images are from the Native American Heritage Month Celebration held in Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach. The event was in its seventh year in 2016 and hosted Native dancers from West Virginia, Virginia, New York and North Carolina.
