Chippewas of Rama Powwow 2014
Seeing photos of a First Nations Powwow Grand Entry is rare - photos are only allowed at competition powwows when announced. It is such a moving and meaningful experience that generates a sense of reverence in everyone present.

The Jingle Dance is also not usually allowed to be photographed, as it is traditionally a healing dance for the community.

This will be the last time I will photograph a Grand Entry or a Jingle Dance, unless i'm specifically asked to. Miigwetch for the opportunity to share these with the world.
