    The little sun dancer - Arizona, US

    The Apache Sunrise Ceremony celebrates a girl becoming a woman. Girls prepare for the ritual for six months or more. During the ceremony, which can last four days, the girls sing, pray, run, and dance, often for hours without stopping. Here, a girl from the White Mountain Apache tribe in Arizona is blessed with pollen, symbolizing fertility.

    We lived in Arizona for two and a half years. Mom always appreciated the Navajo dress, and later, after she went gray, she changed her colors from gold to silver. A friend always gave her an Arizona Highways subscription....and we liked looking at the velvet jackets on the women.
