    Shepherd Lady,

    You will have a wonderful time. Which one are you going to? Expect lots of great drumming and lots of picture opportunities.

    My brother is in a drum group and designed their drum. See here:

    Hi David,
    I'm pretty excited about it!! It's at the California State University in Long Beach. It's the 40th annual pow wow.

    My aunt, by marriage is half Choctaw. She tries to go to their pow wows every year. It's getting harder for her to go. She's 86 years old now.
    And my Mother always told us we had Indian in us. But never told us what tribe. But she didn't talk about her family much. My grandparents on both side were born in Oklahoma back when it was Indian territory. But I really don't know if we have in us or not...

    What a beautiful drum!!

    Check with some of the participants and maybe the organizers of the event and make sure they are okay with you photographing them. Some of those who participate in pow wows are very leery about having pictures made, for a variety of reasons. Most likely you will not have a problem, but it does not hurt to ask.

    I have photographed a couple of them in the past, here in Texas.
