We Went To a Cherokee National Holiday Powwow!

I got to go to a Cherokee Powwow. It was awesome. There were girl dancers with bells on their dresses, and they had the most beautiful colors. They also had ruffles on them. I can tell now, why they call it Powwow. It makes you want to yell "WOW!".
The men had robes with feathers. AND LOTS OF THEM. The drums were toe-tapping. There were some toddlers behind us where we sat, and they were just dancing to it. I don't blame them. It was just where you could hardly keep from dancing. I got a bow and arrow, and my Dad got a "Native Pride" shirt from a stall there. It was just beautiful. They competed when they danced, and the junior girls tied twice for first place! I wish they would've danced more. I loved going there.
