Inspired by an original photo featuring Kiana's Moccasins. While resting, Kiana's wonderful regalia was captured in this pose. She Jingle Dress Dances (Ojibway) and her wonderful mocs were created by her father, Hector. The inspirational photo was taken by Jonathan (Hawk) at the Gateway to Nations Pow Wow on June 5th 2011.
