For our anniversary this year G and I packed up the kids and headed to the fairgrounds for a Standing Bear pow wow. It just seemed like the perfect thing to do. There were a lot of animal bones, shells and feathers, some of which I was strangely tempted to take home; coyote knuckles and fox teeth especially. And there were teepees and drums and singing and dancing, and the crowning of the new pow wow princess. All in all, a good way to mark a special day.
