This is a plains Indian performing a traditional dance that simulates the stomping down of grasses on the plains. What is unusual about this dance is that this woman is the only female who is allowed to perform this dance.
They explained that there are different dances for men and women, but she went to the tribal elders and requested permission to perform the men's dance. Due to her sincerity, they granted her permission.
Congratulations to her for breaking another gender barrier and crack in the glass ceiling.
The red rocks of Sedona's Boynton Canyon and the adobe fireplace make a fitting backdrop for this performance.
This week we have photos of the people of Ethiopia posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
