    Ivy Vainio’s Pow Wow Dancers Photography Helps Preserve Culture

    Ivy Vainio was a senior in high school in Duluth, Minnesota when she attended her first pow wow, with her mother, a member of the Grand Portage Band of Ojibwe. “I remember it very well,” she says. “In the summer of 1986, she brought me to the Nimiiwin Pow Wow when they had it down at Bayfront Park. I remember seeing all the campers, some tipis, and all of the dancers in their colorful regalia. I was in awe knowing that this was part of my culture.”
