Dance Circle, November 1969

The Indian Dance Circle is deserted at this time of day...maybe the performers were on a well-deserved vacation, since this was the "off season". Here we get a view from the stands, looking down at the circle itself. It's kind of nice to get to see it without a crown. A curious boy is taking a peek inside the large tipi...let's hope that if somebody is home, that they are "decent".

Now a young woman tries to summon the flames by beseeching the fire gods. Or something. The boy from the first photo is nowhere to be seen...maybe he's inside the teepee!

Is it possible to do a square dance in a dance circle?

Major- I think dancing a square dance would be like forcing a round peg into a square hole. It could be done, but it would not be pretty!

Thes photographs are nice as the ones I have and have seen always have the dancers in them. Not too many people would have thought to photograph an empty stage like this person.
