Sholuk, Kumeyaay translation: Lightning.


Sholuk, a young Kumeyaay Native American Indian girl from Southern California, is pictured dressed in traditional Kumeyaay clothing (that her mother made to match her own outfit) — Kumeyaay dress, ribbon shirt, juncus pendant necklace. Sholuk is photographed here dancing with other young pow-wow contestants who are wearing the traditional ribbon dresses, shawls, and beaded collars of the Cocopah and Yuman Indians.

Sholuk and the girls are pictured performing cultural dances for pow-wow judges, families and audiences during a Sycuan gathering, September 10, 2005.

"Sholuk" is a Kumeyaay word that translates into English and means "lightning."

Sholuk has been featured in full-color pow-wow magazines as a cute Native American female child model actor and Native dancer. Sholuk currently has no talent agent or SAG card.
