'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau

At the Occoneechee Pow Wow, Joseph Epps announced that his tribe would be having their Pow Wow 7/25. He is the Director of the MacCallum More Museum and Gardens and has been so very good to me. I met him when I did my art show there last year, and we have been back to see him many times. We always bring company we have and he always gives us a wonderful tour and spends so much time talking with us. Wonderful, wonderful man - and he has lead such an interesting life. So we get the program at the Pow Wow - he's not only a member of this tribe, he is the War Chief! How cool is that??? We are very glad we went and we had such a nice time. So much passion in the dancers. Several are the same dancers from the first Pow Wow - this time with different outfits, and one couple has 3 children that also dance! They are the "lead dancers", Osceola and Tina Mullin. Sit back and enjoy the pictures!!
