Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

Another weekend event that I visited was the Heard Museum’s World Championship Hoop Dance Contest. The dancers competing in this intertribal contest are from the United States and Canada and perform with amazing skill and talent a colorful dance full of precision and grace.
The photo I’ve featured here is of Brian Hammill of New River Arizona who won the championship title in the adult division.
The small photo shows the circle of singers and drummers who accompanied the various performers.
