After spending 54 years from birth to 2008 living in Iowa I was presented with an opportunity to live in Fairbanks, Alaska. My blog is a diary of the adventure to get to Alaska, day to day life in Alaska, as well as facts for loved ones left behind in the Lower 48. Enjoy.

International Dance Festival

Last Saturday an International Dance Festival was held in Fairbanks at Pioneer Park (formerly Alaskaland). These photos are from the event.

This photo is of a lady who attends Camilla and Brian's church with her two adopted daughters. I think it is so cool that the mother is wearing clothing from her daughter's native country.

Sunny and snowy outdoors.

This is a group of the participants from various countries.

This is only part of a beautiful mural painted on the wall behind the stage.

Alaska natives. The girls are wearing kuspuks. The receptionist at our facility, Letha, sews beautiful kuspuks and sells them at native events.

Like mother like daughter.

This is a photo of an elderly native and a tiny, young native. The little boy didn't miss a step in following the older gentleman around and around and around.

The lady on the left is wearing garb made from deerskin. Her beads are all handmade too.

Russian dancers
