MIA Limited Edition -Trail

Ciao a tutti!

My fellow Shoe-A-Holics, I recently had the opportunity to witness a time honored tradition of this nations' first peoples; historically a gathering of Native Americans, the 2013 Lowcountry Pow Wow gathered those of Native American heritage (and those of us who aren't) in a serene lakeside setting, once home to the Yemassee tribes people, to partake in great this spectacle of pageantry.

Modern Tepee, complete with fire pit inside,
served as temporary residence for several participants

This beautiful Squaw (pictured far above lower right, in ceremonial regalia) from the Tribe of the People of the First Light, performed a ceremonial Blanket Dance.
From the men who surrounded her, she would dance then place her blanket before the warrior she wanted to marry;
if he picked up her blanket, they would be wed.

Baci a tutti!
