Crow Fair Pics

Last Sunday I was invited to spend the day with a family I know that was camping at Crow Fair. I have never gotten to experience it that way. I have seen the dancing and watched the parades and eaten fry-bread. But hanging out at the camp was a fabulous way to experience the "Tee-Pee Capitol of the World." Here are some pictures I took while I was there.

This is Miss Crow Nation, the daughter of a friend of a friend.

I thought this woman was incredibly beautiful. I call this "calm in the chaos." She stands so straight and tall in the midst of everyone else running around.

A full pageant of color. This doesn't even begin to show what the full grand entry looks like.

This is a view of the tee-pees across from us as we watched the parade on Sunday morning.

There were tons of adorable small children in the grand entry and parade. There were even a few I delivered (no pictures of those though since it would be a HIPAA violation). I loved this mother-child pair.
