CALIFORNIA INDIAN DANCER Picture
Susan Ann Whatoname-Rocha (Hualapai Tribe of Arizona), Native of Arizona, a female Southern California Indian dancer is pictured dancing in a southwestern Native American powwow traditional gathering wearing a handmade custom beaded collar and earrings, feather fan, and traditional ribbon dress with colorful California Indian shawl.
Susan said in an exclusive KUMEYAAY.INFO interview:
"I have introduced my grandsons to our Tribal Culture. As you can guess I stay very busy educating my grandsons in the different realms of culture. We have been to Sycuan four years in a row.
"The beaded cape I wear reflects the breast of the Eagle. All the designs that you may see on other capes are from the areas that they are from. I make my capes and others as well. This something that I have learned from my mother and grandmothers both sides.
"We have the privilege to have 1.1. million acres to call our home. I have started my own business in Cultural lectures and spiritual."
