Friday 4/27 PM

What a day! We started out after that very blah breakfast and headed for the University of New Mexico's Maxwell Museum of Anthropology. It concentrates on the early people of the Southwest, with a reproduction of a dig site at Chaco Canyon, then showed the stages of settlement of the SW.

Then, we headed for The Pit, as UNM's arena is called, for the All Nations Powwow. Saw more color and fancy work than you can imagine. The vendor area was a huge tent, with vndors, mostly Indian, selling about anything you can imagine in dancing gear, music, books, jewelry and more - all Indian, of course. Had an Indian Taco for lunch, then found a seat in the arena for the Grand Entry. Think of the grand entry at a rodeo lasting 45 minutes, with over 3,000 contestants dancing their way in!

We saw a lot of different types of dances in the next 3 hours, very athletic in some cases. I took about 90 pictures, and will post a few after a trip to the hot tub.
