Natasha is the name of the woman. She is about 17 or 27. She is dancing the ceremonial dance of the wart hog or wild pig. She has been doing this since she was 10 years old. The dance has been handed down through her family.
It is hard to tell what she has in her hand. It is wood with plastic on it or petite material or wood with feathers on it.
It takes place in a park or football field. She is dancing in front of a large group of people that will end up joining her. This is a festival for Black History Month in February. The group travels to universities, homecomings, and festivals.
Where is her face? It is behind all the hair. She is smiling. It is a happy dance - weird but happy.
Natasha is an exchange student. She is studying about her culture, nursing and business and computers. She belongs to a tribe in Africa. After she is finished she will pass out.
She has a boyfriend named Jacob. He is in the crowd. He is in Business Administration. She likes to listen to Jazz and Blues and ceremonial songs.
This is the city of St. Augustine. She is bear legged. There is a group of 20 that travel in a bus to perform.
Someone approaches her and thanks her. They dance way into the night.
