Tara and Gan dancers, Apache Sunrise Ceremony
Tara and her companion dance with the Gan impersonators (or Mountain Spirit Dancers) that give blessings. In her hand she carries her staff with two eagle feathers attached. The staff is blessed by the medicine man and gives her strength. She must carry it throughout the ceremony. From the collection of Grrlstories (www.grrlstories.org) a project that explores the ways girls come of age in America.
