We went to the annual Chasco Festival last weekend in New Port Richey. FL. Most of the events; races, boats, rides, bands, parades car shows...., take place alongside the Pithlachascotee River. (Say that fast 3 times.) We went to see the Native American Powwow Dances. Native Americans from across the country and some from Canada participated.
This post will show you a few of the things from the booths. (Of course there was much more.) Next post I'll share some of the costumes worn for the dances.
Ok, ok, let me show you the whole picture of that thing-a-ma-jig up there.
They had gorgeous leather clothing and weaved items too.
I will leave you with one more pic.
Remember, "head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes?"
Well here they are.
Oh, I also bought a cookbook, titled "Indian Cooking." I'll leave you with one of the recipes....teeheee....if you remember one of my earlier posts, you'll know why I chose this one.
Cook like ground hog. Remember these are greasy, eat only small amount.
"God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good!" Genesis 1:31 (MS)
American Indian saying:
"At the first sound of the whippoorwill in the spring, the Indian knew it was time for planting."
How like God to use His creation to help us along.
