I have wanted to try fry bread ever since I read about it. I have wanted to go to an Indian Pow Wow* since I read about it. Stone Mountain has held one around Halloween for years and today I went for the first time. I had fry bread from Nikki’s Frybread and it was so good — moist, a little bit sweet, and reminiscent of the Taiwanese breakfast staple, you-tiao (breadstick). Specifically, I had an Indian Taco. Yummy, not gluten-free but I had to try some. I know from youtube videos that one can make it from gluten-free flour, though.
I saw the grand entry of the tribes and when the Red Boys starting drumming, my heart felt alive. I didn’t take too many photographs or videos because I wanted to be as present in the experience as possible.
I also got a photograph of a bald eagle from Paul De Luna. The bald eagle is one of my spirit animals.
Here are a couple of videos I shot:
