This was my 2nd Pow Wow in 6 weeks — the other having been the “Honoring Of The Elders” Inter-Tribal Pow Wow In Tamworth, NH on May 21, 2016.

It was GOOD. Very good. Loved it. Different, way different to the one in Tamworth. For a start it was much bigger, much larger attendance, more dancers and it was a custom-built venue for Inter-Tribal Pow Wows. The atmosphere and ambience was just magical. Beautiful grounds. Lots of trees and hence shady and cool thought it was a v. hot (mid-80s) day. As with Tamworth there was this amazing, palpable sense of dignity and serenity. Though there were at least 150 people about it was not loud. We got there around 2:30pm. The drummers were having a well-earned lunch break. So the only music was flutes and that was very soothing. The drums, when they started, were impressive. As was the signing.

I took a LOT of pictures. Haven’t had time to sort them all out. Just published these 18 to get us started. I can’t claim that these were my best shots. I just pulled out 18 in a hurry. I will work on publishing more.

Appears that they have more Pow Wows in August and September. I am going to try and attend at least one of these.

P.S., Entrance is by donation. That was neat since we only planned to spend 2 – 3 hours.

I thoroughly recommend this place and the Pow Wows. Enjoy.

Another Intertribal Pow Wow in New Hampshire, this time in the South tier, just a few weeks after the very successful “Honoring Of The Elders” Pow Wow in Tamworth, N.H. This looks good. Not sure we will be able to make it. That is a busy weekend.

Topless In New Hampshire — Inspired By The Inter-Tribal Pow Wow.

by Anura Guruge


There were a few other topless folks at the “Honoring Of The Elders” Inter-Tribal Pow Wow in Tamworth, NH (May 21, 2016). And it got real hot in the afternoon — and I am just talking about the weather. So I exercised a right that I do, near daily, during the Summer. I too went topless. Hope you are not disappointed. SMILE.

I guess I could pass as a Diné (Navajo) — right?

Devanee took these pictures — as if she has never seen me topless before.

This took place about 2 hours after the dancing started (at noon). It is a dance (and tradition) meant to teach children discipline and community participation. Very cute. A cross between an Easter egg hunt and musical chairs. When the drumming stops you try to pick up as much candy and toys as you can. But if the drumming starts again you have to drop everything you have picked up. So that is the musical chairs part. They don’t know how many times the drumming will stop and then start. However, when the drumming stops for the last time — you get to keep all you collected — candy and stuffed toys in the main. Very good. Video also gives you an idea as to the EXCELLENT singing and group drumming.


First video taken with
3 day old Fujifilm X-E2s.
