Pow Wow

10:41 PM

First time attending the annual pow wow over at CSULB. Truly an amazing event! we had so much fun admiring the dancers and singers all coming together to celebrate their roots and rich culture. 

We all watched in excitement as the elders sang in varying pitches accompanied by slow but powerful drum beats that shook you  to the very core.  Couldn't help but think how extraordinary it must be to sing/chant something the very same way your ancestors did some hundreds of years ago. How fortunate I thought, to be able to have that connection to the past and to continue passing it along. 
I am looking forwards to doing the same with Lukas and teaching him as much as I can not only about his very own culture but other people's cultures as well.
