According to additional information provided on 10/2011 by a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: The tradition is to have the visitors from other reservations come in in a procession as they come to the fiesta. Ramadas are built for them to sleep in at the Fiesta grounds. Sometimes the procession is led by musicians and men firing guns into the air from the hosting tribe announcing the arrival.
