Week 47 Photo of the Week, Pow Wow Fancy Dance

19 11 2009

I took this photo at a Pow Wow at The Fort in Omaha, Nebraska in 2000. The Omaha Tribe was one of the tribes participating in the Pow Wow. This is a picture of the Fancy Dance competition.

“Historic Fort Omaha, located at 30th and Fort Streets in Omaha, Nebraska, entered into service in 1868. Omaha’s Metropolitan Community College began using the facility in August 1975 for technical and other types of training. The facility is now a thriving community college that has preserved a historical focal point of north Omaha. Terms of use for Metropolitan Community College dictate that the historic parade ground and exteriors of brick buildings cannot be altered.”

You should see that area now, it is really thriving and they are really putting some effort into cleaning it up and stopping the crime rate….same w/ the area of South 24th street! I love seeing how far they have come, both of these areas have some cool buildings and are rich in culture…

Love all the vivid colors in your image, great capture!
