I'm usually really shy about taking other people's pictures but when a friend and I went to the local powwow last july I took my telephoto lens just in case... I've read that, traditionally, native americans have always cherished their children, and from the look of this shot I'd say they still do... children were, and are, the future of the tribe...

Cameras are like people--sometimes they lose focus.

Mary, I suppose that a 'powwow' is a kind of a meeting for native Americans. Very colorful image. See by the eyes of the mother that she's proud of her daughter, so I'll agree with your narrative.

Very good contest entry.

Good Luck.

Regards, Cornelius.
