Oglala Nation Pow Wow is always the biggest pow wow of the year on Pine Ridge Reservation and the 2009 event was no exception.

Mark Tilsen, Sr., president of Native American Natural Foods, was on hand during the four-day celebration to take some pictures of some of the hundreds of dancers who were competing.

The pow wow, in its 24th year, is held every August in Pine Ridge, S.D.
