Pow-wow Grand Entry (Video)

Here’s where I was this evening. This quick little movie will give you a taste, at least. I actually blended the grand entry itself with something I thought the announcer said was the “national anthem”—the long clip focused on the one singer—though you won’t hear any Francis Scott Key in there. (Is there a Tiwa anthem?) The drum group heard throughout and barely seen here is “1680” from Taos Pueblo. Be sure to watch all the way to the end and keep your eye on the guy with the blue bandana!

This video is 720p (HD) and you should play it that way. I shot it with my Pentax DSLR. Except for no auto-focus in movie mode and my waving the camera all over Creation, the results aren’t half bad. I do like being able to shoot video through the telephoto lens, too.

    Hi John,
    Thanks for sharing..!! When I was in Taos in late October 2002 there wasn’t anything like this going on at the Pueblo. Nice to get a chance to see some action.
    And by the way, do your hikes, take your photos [they’re great]…it’s all good..!! Brings back memories of my week in Taos.

      You’re very welcome!

      The hiking will definitely continue. It’s fantastic exercise at 7,000 feet. I need to up my game, though, and head up into the mountains.
