This weekend.....Sept 26-28
The 18th annual Thunder and Lightning Pow Wow
Morongo Indian casino fairgrounds
The drum call of the opening ceremonies is amazing! I saw it last year and it was/is a memorable event, with hundreds of dancers from tribes nationwide and beyond participating - all in their awesome costumes and dancing pieces from their respective to-be performances.
It doesn't seem that a year has passed, since I was there. But so it is. It seems we've switched in a week from one season to the next - blessedly. Those last few weeks, the first part of September, were a bitch and a bastard combined. Something about Labor Day - ugh - summer laboring on and on....and suddenly, the first of the San Gorgonio Pass and Coachella Valley pow wows is set to begin.
If anyone wants to go with me Friday night...let me know. I believe it's free.
