They stopped and turned gracefully showing off the dramatic cut and style of fashions inspired by traditions and culture, custom-made for tribal events, business meetings, dances and every day events.
The show was held last Wednesday in the University of New Mexico’s Continuing Education auditorium. The event, sponsored by Albuquerque Public School’s Native American Leadership Council, had a packed house.
