November is Native American Heritage Month

Posted on: November 4, 2012

Saturday my local mall hosted an event where multi tribes came together to showcase the Native American Culture.  It was a fun event that was both informative for my homeschooler and myself.  They told funny stories about how when the women started joining dance competitions that they were winning them all, so the men decided women needed their own separate dance.  They had a drum circle of chanters that were amazing.  They chanted honor songs and danced for our veterans and another one to honor women as the giver of life.  During the honor songs they asked that no photographs or video be taken.

This is what I wore to the event.  I have been really in a tough transitional stage with my weight loss and pants this past few weeks as fall weather set in.  I had not estimated correctly where my weight loss would be when the cool weather approached.  These pants I had purchased for fall  had been too tight to wear, but I fit in them now and am so happy.  Although they are tight, it’s what I have and I will just get to see them look better as I continue to lose….

This is Connor with a Red Tailed Hawk and his favorite thing about the event. He laughed so hard at one point when the Hawk was being handled and flipped himself upside down and was hanging from his arm…

These are some of the dancers.  We  joined them in a circle dance where they actually led us in and out of the stores around center court. It was a lot of fun and easy to do since the beat of the drum is all you follow.  My friend is of Native American Heritage and has been to many Pow Wows and even went to one on a Reservation in Canada that she literally got chills over thinking about.  I would like to do this again in the summer where they have an outdoor one that is much bigger.  My favorite part was the flute music played by one man.  He played several different instruments and the music was beautiful and to me felt spiritual.   I pictured it being so much better if we had been outside in nature.

I have the purse backwards in all the photos… oops.  That is what happens when my kids take a photo versus my husband who notices those things….

Gratitude- I am grateful for the time spent with my two younger sons on Saturday.  I am also grateful my daughter survived a very stressful week and that her GRE is behind her.
