Traditions In The Making 2000

Saturday October 7th 2000

The pow wow got off to a good start with dancers hailing from Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Idaho and one dancer from Canada. Traditions also attracted people from Europe. One photographer from Germany and Ryan Paul from London, England.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, Ambrose Redhouse - Arena Director and Eagle Creek - Northern Host Drum, could not make the trip from Kayenta. Luckily Al Blackbird stepped in, doing a brilliant job as Arena Director. Cliff Eagle Singers filled in as Northern Host Drum.

Traditions would like to express their appreciation to Alex Shepherd, Master of Ceremonies, for all of his advice and support. Thanks also goes to John Begay, Salt Lake Southern for again hosting this year.

My sincere appreciation goes to Alex, John, Al and Emerson for doing a wonderful job in making this year's pow wow a success!

The drum contest was brilliant, with some magnificent displays of drumming and singing. In the end, Walking Bear won with only ONE point to spare. Well done!! Singers were Quanah LaRose, Jerry Bear, JoJo Bear, Bert Pewankee, Aden Sam, and Herman Begay.
