Psychedelic Pow Wow Party: Happy Thanksgiving! [50 PICS]

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Once upon a time, long before white settlers came to the New World, Native Americans had many celebrations to honor the seasons such as Harvest Time in the fall. We don’t hear about that much, instead the focus is on Thanksgiving. We do hear about pow wows which honor the old Native American ways, yet are social events that both Native Americans and non-Native Americans attend to dance, to sing, and to honor culture and a rich heritage. Since we’ve done a trio of Navajo Nation tributes, we thought a Thanksgiving Pow Wow might be a cool way to celebrate. Photo #1 ‘The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth’ (1914) by Jennie A.

Savoring the Wildlife on Grandfather Mountain

Eagle at Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina

Looming 5,946 feet above sea level in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina is home to 16 distinct ecological communities. The photographer titled this eagle, ‘If You’re Not Outraged…You’re Not Paying Attention!’ The eagles here are rescued victims of hunters and poachers. The wounded bald and golden eagles found in the wild are nursed back to health at specialized rehabilitation centers here. They are returned to the wild if possible, but if the eagle has an injury that will permanently inhibit its ability to survive, they live on Grandfather Mountain. Photo #1 by Kenny P.
