Learning the native culture
    #2721504 - 05/24/04 04:42 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I am now living with a native family in a small northern alberta town. It's basically a reserve. There's somewhere around 3000 people and from what the statistics say, there is somewhere around 2400 native people.

Even though this is quite a drastic change for me, I find it very interesting to be immersed in the native community. Just a few days ago I went to a pow wow(sp?)...where there are dancers. Very impressive. Especially the hoop dancers. It's amazing the formations and designs they make with their hopes. The one woman was dancing with 17 hoops and has been all over the world dancing...she was incredible. Contorting, swinging and twisting those hoops all around her, while dancing quite impressively...making dazzling images of an eagle flapping his wings, plants, prey(moose, etc). She told an entire story with a long dance(well some people can't clue into the story part...but it's there to people who are looking properly).

It looks like I'm going to be in this community for quite awhile. New job and all. I find that many of these woman around my age are incredibly attractive. For some reason there is something very incredible with some native womens eyes. I love nice eyes. It's like they have the gaze that is very ancient. Hard to explain for me. Whatever it is, it's damn attractive.

anyway, just wanted to share that. These are amazing people.
