Native American Day at the State Capitol Building

We were at the State Capitol Building today to attend a House committee hearing.

Afterwards we wandered around the Rotunda and the main floor. It was Native American Day and there were lots of exhibition tables and information, as well as a large gathering listening to speeches in the rotunda, and some colorful people in native dress. There were Native Americans represented by the Pueblo, Hopi, Apache and Navajo nations.

The highlight was spending a few minutes talking to Stacie Chavez, Miss Jicarilla Apache 2009-2010. What a lovely young woman.
