Native Pride.

Well, look who stumbled into the Native Pride area. This page is all about the Native American. It will contain photography I have taken and information about Native American issues.

Native American affairs are very important to me. My dad was born and raised on the Menominee Indian Reservation. I have always had much respect for the Native American heritage.

Hunting and gathering all of the content for this page I am. So, do yourself a favor, find  yourself in here again. It will be worth the journey.

    The colors in these photos are really eye-catching. I can imagine how much pride you must have in your heritage attending this celebration of the Menominee Nation.

      Is definitely a moving event for me to witness. It is so good to see the pride that all the participants demonstrate. A pride in their heritage. It does make me feel proud for them.

      We will have to go up to Keshena for this year’s pow wow. I think it will be good for the kiddos to witness such an event. They have Menominee blood coursing through their veins after all. Tis their heritage as well. I get seriously moved every time I go.

    I am a proud Menominee Indian, the blood runs strong in my veins. It makes me proud and strong to know others feel the same way about their heritage to put up some immaculate photography of our land and our people. Thank you for this <3

      Good morning Stephanie. Thank you for taking time to look at my website. It truly does my heart good to connect with other proud Menominees. My dad was born and raised in Keshena. I have always felt a strong connection and sense of Native Pride via my father. Even though he passed from cancer when I was young I still feel that connection, which is stronger than ever. I have his blood, Menominee blood, coursing through my veins.

      Have a wonderful today my fellow Menominee.

      All the best,

      Todd.

    OMG Todd,I COULD be mistaken,but I don’t think I AM!! Lol. If the description of the above photo is CORRECT (3rd one from the top,taken in the bowl at the 2008 Menom-Powwow!?!?) If it IS………….then I think I SEE “MYSELF” sittin in the stands with my Bro-in-law (who’s Stockbridge/Munsee) on the wooden-bleachers BETWEEN the two pines,sitting second from the top-row with a WHITE T-shirt on,shorts,black-sneakers and Native-ballcap with a blue-umbrella behind me (to shield the sun from me!! My Bro-in-law is sitting right beside me holding my nephew!! LOL. LOVE IT!! Thank You for all your wonderful pics because You’ve taken the EXACT ONES of all the pics I have taken over the years whenever I’ve traveled up there as well!!

      That photo was definitely taken at the 2008 Menominee Nation Pow-Wow. I see you there under the blue umbrella. I absolutely love going to the pow-wow. It very much offers me a connection to my dad and the tribe.

Also,relatives of mine run one of the “Frybread” stands there as well!! Mmmmm-MMMM!! NOTHING in this WORLD like a piece of MENOMINEE-FRYBREAD!!!!
