**My very FIRST slideshow! Aren’t you proud?**
I live in the middle of the woods in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Next to Lake Superior's cold shores. I love to blog.

Oh my gosh, Kathy, the photograph that has two little girls in the foreground and a woman right behind them with a long black skirt and a white blouse has a BUCHANAN PLAID draped over her left arm — we I’ll be darned 🙂
As always, beautiful pics. I was getting ready to comment on the contrast between the attire at the Pow Wow and that worn at the Jamboree. then it occured to me that if the performers at the Jamboree had worn traditional Finnish laplanders outfits they actualy would look quite similar. I am guessing that like the laplanders outfit there is significance and meaning behind the colors and designs worn at the Pow Wow.
I am proud of you! Beautiful pictures Kathy! The colors are spectacular and 🙂 I noticed that plaid Laurie referred to as well! 🙂 I especially noticed the young girl with green and gray diagonal stripe outfit, she looks so proud, her bearing regal! I would love to know more about the Pow Wow in your area and the customs of the Indian People there. I remember meeting a woman of Indian heritage while visiting Munising, I could have stayed and listened to her much longer but we had only stopped for a quick break on our way out of town. She was with her Mother at the same rest stop we were at. Kathy your slideshow was fun to watch, thanks for sharing it with us!
I have enjoyed the last 3 posts. The beadwork and color combinations are truly beautiful handwork! I have managed to get to a couple when I lived in the lower peninsula of MI. The pow wows were put on by the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa.
Modern technology meets timeless cultural beauty … what more can one ask for?
I keep forgetting how to do the slideshow so, I get a very nice surprise each time!
Well done. The clothes are so colorful!
What a great idea – the slide show! Loved it. Beautifully done. Good to see some familiar youth dancing … Bless you for this offering of pow wow magic 🙂
LOVED THE SLIDE SHOW!! HAVE TO GET OUT THE INSTRUCTIONS YOU GAVE ME TO MOVE IT INTO YOUR FOLDER. .THE CHILDREN ARE BEAUTIFUL, ESPECIALLY THE LITTLE GIRLS.
Wonderful slideshow, Kathy. Very colorful.
Loved the little girl in purple and all the fringe, and the young woman in yellow, when she turned her back and you could see the fringe moving…
Love, love, love these pics, Kathy. Thank you sooo much for sharing them.
Very neat, soooo proud!
Very nice Kathy! I am proud of you too. Isn’t great when we accomplish things we’ve never done before. Usually, I resist trying new things because of the learning curves, especially in the area of technology, but if I persist and learn it, it feels so good.
