As it turned out, the customer, Rhonda Jones, of Corbin, was looking for a dreamcatcher. “My four-year-old daughter has a friend who’s having bad dreams, and we wanted to get her friend one,” Jones said.
She found the dreamcatcher she was looking for, and struck up a conversation with Janet while her children looked at other items displayed on the tent’s table.
“We’ve seen a lot of neat stuff. The dancers, the tomahawk display, and the live entertainment. It’s a neat experience. We’ve learned a lot about the traditions today,” Jones added.
And, as Janet Emmett put it, maybe a lot of others who made the visit to the pow wow did so, too. On a weekend of heavy traffic, threatening rains, and $3.99 a gallon gas prices, the sound leading them to the site soothed their souls.
“When we come here, we come down. To a much slower pace. More relaxed, and certainly more reflective. We’re catching life as it comes. One day at a time,” she said.
