Have any pictures of real INDIANS? You won't find them in New Jersey. Try Oklahoma where the real Indians live.

To the one above... we may not be real INDIANS, but we're real NATIVE AMERICANS! Just because we aren't too federally recognized in Jersey doesn't mean we're not here. We have family in Oklahoma. We expand as a nation, just like our ancestors did and how people do now. I kno you travel and move, or your family moves to other places. They have kids and then start their own family there.

To the photographer of this, these are nice shots of pictures. I must admit... I was jealous ma little brother was on here and I was now. Just kidding. But, continue to take photos. We have another Pow Wow in South Jersey, the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Pow Wow in Salem county on June 9th and 10th. My e-mail is, so e-mail me for information if needed. Thank you.
