Raritan Pow Wow

Back to the Raritan Pow Wow this year. I didn’t realize we’d gotten in so close to the ground floor and started coming to this in only its third year. We arrived in time to catch the Aztec Mexica dancers and eat our Indian Tacos before the grand entry.

Grand Entry is always fun. Still much smaller than what we’re used to at Stanford but it’s getting bigger. Boys are older and the weather was better so we got to watch a couple dance competitions as well. Those are fun even though we don’t know what the judges are looking for. It’s always interesting to compare who we think is good versus who the judges like. Men’s traditional we had no idea. Women’s Fancy Shawl though we did much better.

I didn’t quite have the right camera equipment so I had to make do with the kit setup. I did okay though. Autofocus is kind of handy for a change.

  1. Beautiful attire. Love all the bright colors. You did a great job of capturing the spirit of the event. I feel like I can picture them dance when I close my eyes.
