The late afternoon sun created a glowing aura around this beautiful child as she waited to dance. Relaxed and staring off into the distance, one hand idly plays with an otter fur braid-wrap.
I subdued all of the bright colors of her clothing and corn husk hat to emphasize her delicate face and lovely expression.
