Additional Details:
A Ceremonial Dancer. The woman in the Sun-Buffalo Pueblo Ceremonial is painted by Wo Peen, Indian artist from New Mexico, as one of the murals in the “Pueblo of the Seven Fires” at the YMCA College Freshman Camp, Springfield, Massachusetts. The dancer has the beautiful sun symbol on her back with eagle tail feathers representing the sun's rays. Blue-the sky. Red-heat. Yellow-sunshine. Orange-the glow of the sun's rays. In her hands and hair are sacred eagle plumes. The down of the eagle is used as snow on the hair. The dress is hand woven and symbols are in the embroidered border. Skunk skins are worn over the buckskin leggins at the ankle to protect her spirit from the effect of evil spirits that exist in the earth.
