NAYA: Native American Youth Association Powwow

Recently we went to a NAYA (Native American Youth Association) Powwow in Northern Portland.  Amazing dancers and drummers.  I loved how they included even the youngest children.  They gave my four year old a dollar after she participated.  She held onto it for hours afterwards.
