Photo of Pacco, a Native America dancer at the Pow Wow on the River in Chatt.Tn. I have photographed him several times before at other Pow Wows. His eyes are very intense and he is a most expressive dancer. The sweat is on his brow and chest, and the makeup is running. I was lucky this time around to meet Pacco at this event.He is a super nice guy. It's always great to finally meet the folks that you have photographed.

Lightbox for best viewing.

    Outstanding shot of Pacco ! What intensity he has ! For some reason, growing up with Native Americans, I " feel " like he's a medicine man ? Someone to be revered.... Amazing image Donna....
