    Very Cool. Nice shot Rhys. Wasn't his dad's name Jay?
    We have Pow-Wows around here too. There are special photography rules that apply, in case anyone of you happen along this type of opportunity.

    You are allowed to take pictures while the Grand Entry is in progress but please do not take any photographs during the Flag Song, during the prayer, or if a dancer drops an Eagle feather. If a dancer drops an Eagle feather a respected elder or a veteran must perform a short ceremony and prayer to pick up the fallen feather, no photographs during this event what-so-ever!

    Do not take any photographs of a dancer unless you ask their permission first. When a dancer is in the arena they are normally fair game for pictures, but when you see them up close and outside of the arena it is polite to ask for their permission first.

    These are listed under "The Pow-Wow etiquette".
    Don't worry, going to one of these can be very rewarding. The penalty can be fun as well learning to trade something for a violation of a rule. Here is a link to one of our local sites. I'm sure this isn't the only culture that may have some rules to play by concerning our photos.

    The only do not we were told of was no photography during the fire ceremony. I respected that.
