Native american Indian is my culture. We have pow wows all over the united states. These pow wows is were all the tribe come together to share  and celebrate their beliefs.

You can by several items like clothing and jewels that represent these cultures. Native clothing is much more different than any other clothing’s. You also get to experience the foods they enjoy to. For instance I like the Navajo Tacos, its much like american tacos but their bread is different and they place chili beans on them. You can’t just pick them up and eat them that’s for sure its made like a pizza so it does require spoon and folks wear.

Going hunting is part of the natives Indians nature. They enjoy it alot, while it the same time there bring food home to put on the tabel.

Me and my family enjoy hunting season alot. We like to go deer, rabbit, duck, and squirl hunting. Yes I’m a country girl always has been. We enjoy going horse trail riding and riding four wheelers too.
