This past weekend, I had the opportunity to go back to the O'ahu Intertribal Powwow and took photos, which I am in the process of editing at this moment. This is the second year that I have attended the powwow, and I have to say it is the only other place that makes me feel like I'm back in my early adulthood years when I was in hula and assisting either by cooking rice or doing whatever I could to make sure the behind the scenes was taken care of.
Now, however, I am able to take this opportunity to use my photography skills to take photos for the O'ahu Intertribal Council. This is purely out of enjoyment, and I will be going every year from here on out to reconnect to something that I used to attend in one way, I now get to experience in another.
On Saturday, I wound up forgetting though, that I was in the sun the ENTIRE day, so I was a bit more than a little toasty and have now started the agonizing peeling process that seems like it never ends.
As of right now I just finished editing the images for the Kahuku dancers that attended the powwow on Saturday, which I am also in the process of posting to the Powwow album under creative work page.
Enjoy, and if anyone is thinking of going next year you should! It is a great place to meet people and experience different cultures and best of all Indian Tacos!!!
