Knott's Berry Farm October 2019 Part 2

We stayed at Knott's til 2:00 after arriving at 8:45. As others suggested an early arrival with no crowds and cool morning air is best. We did all the shows including ghostly tale of Sleepy Hollow at the Bird Cage Saloon, rode trains complete with gun slinging robbers and enjoyed watching children and adults in costumes. Ghoulish characters passed out candy treats to all the kids and Fall pumpkin decorations adorned every corner. We really enjoyed the Native American hoop dancer Gary Wiskigeatyuk and spoke with him at length about his family lineage to the Chiefs of the Potowatomi tribe. The plight of the Native American Indians is deeply moving. By 1:00 the sun was really wearing me down as was the now crowded park. It was a fun morning activity for the Fall season.

 These are family photos of the chiefs of the Potawatomi tribe that the hoop dancer belongs to. His father, grandfather and so on are photographed here. He has danced this traditional dance for 28 years at Knotts. He also lectures at schools and University's and Museums on the plight of the Native Americans.
