Next to Last Set

Two Tribal Princesses, Ponca on left & Pawnee on right.

The Comanche Tribal Princess

The Apache Tribal Princess

A fancy dress dancing competitor.  With the cell phone
in his right hand, it seems technology spans all cultures.  I've added
a You Tube clip of a fancy dance competition.  Watch the
intricate footwork, and note as the fatigue level increases, so does
the dancing tempo. 

Father and son competitors. 
"Drum" refers to both the instrument, and the gathering of ten drummers
and singers in the circle.  This was the same drum performing here and
throughout the evening.  When watching the video above, note that their
performance is so finely tuned that it seems only one drummer is playing.
