Senior Citizen's Native American Day

David Hall plays the drum Friday while Nelson Becenti sings during Native American Day at the Ford Canyon Senior Citizens Center in Gallup. The celebration was held in conjunction with the Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial.

Elbert Burbank scoops up a serving of his Blue Corn Meal with sage and serves it to the seniors Friday afternoon at the Ford Canyon Senior Center in Gallup. The center held its annual Native American Day to tie in with the 86th Annual Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial, and served a meal featuring the corn meal and balogna sandwiches which they laughingly called Navajo Steak.


Dressed in a Squaw outfit that her mother wore, Ashley Chischilly picks up a sandwich and some blue corn meal with her grandmother, Mrs. Brown, following behind her Friday during Native American Day at the Ford Canyon Senior Center in Gallup. Brown said she is known for the traditional clothing she makes, including the dress she is wearing.
