Bandera Texas Pow Wow Sept 2-4
Bandera is Incredible Beautiful Hill Country that was once heavily populated with Native peoples . We came here to talk to Richard Gonzales Vice President of the Lipan Apaches of Texas. Richard has spent his whole life putting back together the pieces of his own personal family history. With many stories ending very terrifying and tragic ways. Listening to his own families personal stories of Genocide cant help but bring tears to your eyes. Apache was dirty word given to his people their own name for themselves was N’dee.
Richard also shared with us past traditional meals and ways of preparing food and setting up a Tipi.
We want to give a special thanks to Lenny Medina for letting us film and doing a get Job of Hosting the Pow Wow in Bandera Texas. Lenny Medina share with us some of his background as well. Thank Lenny!
