The 17th Annual Austin Powwow and American Indian Heritage Festival was held Saturday at the Tony Burger Center in south Austin. Tim Howling Crane, from Kansas City, readies to participate in the grand entry parade to start the festival. The festival attracts American Indians from across the United States to participate in singing, dancing, storytelling, arts, foods and crafts. 

 Chayton Hoskins, 3, from the Keetoowaa tribe and living in Leander, TX., stands with his father David Hoskins as he meets Tim Howling Crane, at far right, backstage prior to taking part in the grand entry parade.

  1. I like the photo of Tim Howlling Crane shot at the 17th Annual Austin Pow wow.

    I am responsible for designing our annual pow wow poster for the Kainai Nation Pow wow thie summer. What would it take to possibly use one of your great pow wow images for our poster this year?

    Let me know Im on a short time frame.

    Thanks,

    • I think that would be a fantastic idea. If this is the picture you would like let me know, and of course what you could afford. We can always work something out. I can be reached via the blog or through my email at ralph@ralphbarrera.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
