As members of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe danced, drummed and displayed veterans’ flags in President Barack Obama’s inauguration parade, 14-year-old Kanani Shoyo noticed a section of bright light ahead of them.

Dressed in the tribe’s traditional ceremonial attire amid the frigid Washington, D.C., temperatures, Shoyo and others in the group saw America’s 44th president beaming at them from a secure spot above the procession.
