Recalling the Opening Ceremony in Saipan.

The warriors performing
The more decorous dance !


Due to the history of Saipan and the Marianas being linked to two different tribes,  we had two different types of dance to entertain us at the meal which folowed the formal speeches and Colour Raising at the American War Memorial amphitheatre.

Both were colourful but the "warriors" were more dramatic and their "Stick Dance War Dance" was skilful and noisy !   I suspect that some fingers get broken during practice !
