A week ago today , Dh and I headed out to the Shakori Hills Festival http://www.shakorihills.org/?section=407&PHPSESSID=96003f7d452cba40bba4ce27988f401c , we were planning to go on Friday before Easter , but it was a cold rainy day so we didn't go. Keith Secola was performing Friday and Sunday night. Our Easter gathering was planned for Sunday afternoon , but after talking with the family , they all agreed we should go and we would have our gathering on Monday. They all know I'm a big fan of Keith Secola ~ http://www.secola.com/ ~ and he hasn't been to the festival in a year or so. It was a beautiful day , the weather was perfect and we really enjoyed seeing the local band pictured above Dark Water Rising ~ http://www.darkwaterrising.net/ ~ . They're a Native American band from Robeson N.C. , home of the Lumbee Tribe http://www.lumbeetribe.com/Press%20Room/03_21_11_DWR.html .
Keith Secola's show was a tribute to the different Native American Tribes at the festival , he was joined on stage by Pura Fe and John Lakota Locklear ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv8m2SWNIEk .
His show also featured Moontee Sinquah , who was the world champion hoop dancer in 2008.
This is Moontee's son , he performed with his Dad. The pictures aren't great , it was getting dark , we were under the dance tent and I was taking them sitting down. We had a great time though , eat some frybread and did a round dance to his song called " Frybread ".
