COLORS SHINE AT

THUNDER MOUNTAIN LENAPE’ NATION’S

2011 POW WOW

     Lime green, forest green, olive green; royal blue, robin’s egg blue; gold lame’; beige, dark brown; turquoise; burnt orange; sunny yellow; sunny yellow; dusty pink—the colors flooded the dance circles at the Thunder Mountain Lenape’ Nation’s 13th Annual Native American Festival held in Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, today.

     The rainbow of colors and shades were set against a background of Pennsylvania hills and blue skies decorated with white clouds.

 

     Some of the most brilliant costumes were seen on members of the Cante Tenza Okolakiciye, a. k. a. the Strong Heart Warrior Society of the Lakota Nation, which is an ancient Lakota warrior society that honors Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. 

 

    

     Numerous dancers wore outfits having prints and colors that honor the United States—in fabrics of its flag colors, red, white, and blue.

     The event was both educational and entertaining. For those of you who have never attended a Native American Pow Wow, watch for Thunder Mountain’s 14th event coming in August 2012.
