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.
