A Ribbon Shirt

A Ribbon Shirt

July 13 – One of the things that got Gabe interested in going to see a powwow was a book we have by Robert Munch about a girl who is wearing a ribbon dress. It is a traditional Mohawk costume with many ribbons attached. The girl in the book was from the Kahnawake community. The man in black has on a ribbon costume and we saw him close up as he was walking around the pow wow. I think Gabe’s favorite thing was getting a red raspberry snow cone. I enjoyed talking to a medicine woman about the “medicine wheel” that we have seen painted on the path around the lake near our place in Oakland.
