THE 2010 ECHOTA CHEROKEE INDIAN POWWOW
WAS WONDERFUL.  I AM A MEMBER OF THE
ECHOTA CHEROKEE TRIBE!   SINCE I DON'T
KNOW ALL THE NAMES OF PEOPLE... I WILL
NAME MAINLY THEIR  ACTION IN THE PICTURE
CAPTIONS.

RAIN CLOUDS LOOMED MOST OF THE DAY. MY 
PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED AND THE RAIN
WAS HELD.  IT DID SPRINKLE FOR ABOUT THREE
MINUTES RIGHT BEFORE THE GRAND ENTRY. WE
TOOK OUR LITTLE GRAND-DAUGHTER WITH US
WE FIRST TOOK HER TO EAT BREAKFAST AT THE
CRACKER BARREL .  SHE HAD AN EGG AND A
PANCAKE. SHE ATE EVERY BIT OF IT.  I WAS AMAZED
OF HOW CONTENT AND FASCINATED SHE WAS WITH
EVERY THING THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE AT THE
POW WOW.  I,TOO, AS A LITTLE CHILD WAS FASCINATED
BY THE AMERICAN INDIANS EVEN BEFORE I KNEW WHAT
HAVING AMERICAN INDIAN BLOOD MEANT.  SHE LOVED
SEEING ALL THE INDIANS IN THEIR DRESS.  SHE LISTENED
INTENTLY TO THE SPEAKERS.  SHE ALLOWED ME
TO GET SOME PICTURES OF HER WHILE THERE. 
HER FAVORITE THING WAS WATCHING THE YOUNG
GIRLS DOING THE BUTTERFLY DANCE.  SHE STILL
DOES HER LITTLE DANCE...TELLING ME SHE IS
DOING THE BUTTERFLY DANCE.  THIS LITTLE ONE
STOPPED US WALKING AND HAD TO GO INTO
THE TEPEE.  SHE HAD TO CHECK OUT THE INSIDE.
WE BOUGHT HER A ROASTED CORN ON THE COB.
I BOUGHT ONE, TOO; PLUS A ROASTED TURKEY LEG
I GOT TO EAT HALF OF MY CORN ON THE COB.  ONE
CORN ON THE COB WAS NOT ENOUGH FOR THIS
BABY!.  I WAS AMAZED THAT SHE. ALSO,  ATE
ALOT OF MY TURKEY LEG.  I THOUGHT SHE
WOULD FALL SLEEP ON THE WAY BACK... SHE
DID NOT. SHE TALKED ABOUT THE POW WOW.  I
THANK YOU FATHER... CREATOR OF
EVERYTHING FOR MY HERITAGE AND ALLOWING
US TO TAKE HER.
