From June 14-16, the Lower Sioux Indian Community held their 36th annual wacipi, and Oglala Lakota photographer Francesca Wiyaka Luta was there. She says, "This was my first year to the Lower Sioux Wacipi. This three-day pow wow is located in Morton, Minnesota. There was 793 registered dancers and 33 drum groups. People came from Wisconsin, South Dakota and all over Minnesota. Very friendly atmosphere and comfortable camping areas. I will be sure to go again next year!"
