FC: A Family of Dancers

1: Powwow dancing is our way of life to celebrate, tell stories, travel, unite and reunite, exercise, and compete. In my family there are many styles of powwow dances in both the male and female categories. This photo album begins with my mother's grandparents, mother and aunts. Rita Bird Sr. also danced throughout her young life and following her picture are both her children and grandchildren in different locations and different styles of dancing.
