My husband is going to be a non-resident doctor in less than a year, and reality has hit that we have to leave our idyllic Carolina town so that he can find a job. It has to meet super specific specifications (see the About Me tab for an explanation…), so we have some…. interesting places to look.
The IHS hospital here was fantastic and a few different staff members showed us around the reservation, around a nearby town where the non-native providers live, and gave Doc the ins and outs of the hospital.
The morning after our grand tour, I dropped Doc off at the hospital so that he could satisfy some deep and lingering questions, and I meandered up the hill to poke around and be a general nuisance of a white girl at some pre-powwow activities.
These are just a few of the photos I got. We went to a powwow the night after this and probably the most beautiful, intricate handcrafted outfits I’ve ever seen danced around in front of us. I’m sitting at an airport right now, so I’ll have to post those later on today or maybe tomorrow….
