BALBOA PARK POWWOW San Diego Pictures
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALBOA PARK, SAN DIEGO MAY 9, 2009 Hello, I arrived at the American Indian Cultural Festival in the beautiful Southern California city park in my usual professional self prepared to produce some great pow-wow pictures for my world news blogs.
But unfortunately, there was a misunderstanding over who I was working for and the arena director prevented me from taking pictures from my normal areas as a working journalist representing national and inter-tribal news organizations.
And while this problem was straightened out after the event as a simple misunderstanding, the result is I didn't take any pictures this year
AMERICAN INDIAN CULTURAL FESTIVAL
The Native American cultural event in Balboa Park, San Diego, is an important annual celebration of inter-tribal cultural BIRD SINGING, pow-wow drum playing, traditional California-style GOURD RATTLE MUSIC, bird dancing, community educational and elder honorings that draw thousands of Native and non-Native visitors to the San Diego park.
This year's highlights included tribal GOURD DANCING by Native American veterans, student honorings, and a special honoring for FAMOUS KUMEYAAY BIRD SINGER LEROY ELLIOTT, Manzanta Indian Reservation.
