Julyamsh

On the banks of the Spokane River, in the Coeur d'Alene Tribe's ancestral homeland, each July thousands of Native American dancers from all across the country gather to celebrate. It's a multi-generational encampment where history is honored and the future can be seen in the eyes of the young children who are learning the dances of their people.
The gathering provides a public window through which we can come to know the beauty and spirituality of the native people of North Idaho. Dancing, drumming, artist's displays... this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Greyhound Park Events Center in Post Falls.

The man in the headdress is Glen Douglas, one of the few men to serve in WWII, Korea (where he saw significant fighting) and Vietnam. He is a very kind and giving person. He has many great stories to tell.
Hear some of them at the Spokesman-Review's website:
