The 41st Annual Grand Mid-Summer Pow Wow dazzled the crowds at the Queens County Farm Museum in Floral Park last weekend. Tribes from across the country were represented at the two-day event.

In the top left corner, clockwise, are two separate shots of contestants in the dance competition, during which both regalia and dancing skills were taken into account. Below them, another performer does a hoop dance.

In the bottom right corner are pictures of pottery pieces that were available for purchase at the Pow Wow, a Hopi clown kachina made of cottonwood for sale, a vendor demonstrating one of his instruments, and a crowd gathered by the bonfire.
