It's a bit out of season but this photo, simply tagged 'Wacipi' in its title, is so vibrant and colorful it needed to be showcased. It shows that even with metropolitan development nearly encircling the reservation that the children still embrace their heritage - if only for one weekend each summer. I should be more familiar with the date (taken Aug. 3, 2008) but I believe this would have been during the annual Wacipi put on by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux of Prior Lake (Mystic Lake Casino...)
