The Three Fires Confederacy consists of Indian Nations who reside in the United States around the Great Lakes and Canada. Although not of Native American heritage herself, she has actively been involved in Native American communities across the country.This image shows a female Traditional dancer at the Lansing, Michigan Pow Wow.
