DOW MICHAEL EDWARDS - Partner in the law firm of Irwin, Fritchie, Urquhart & Moore LLC and a member of the Mohawk Hunters Mardi Gras Indian tribe. For Spyboy Dow, making a suit has become a very spiritual process because it causes him to reflect on what his ancestors had to go through not only as enslaved people, but in the throes of segregation in city of New Orleans. “The reasons the Indians are out there is because black folks could not go out on St. Charles Avenue and participate in the Mardi Gras parades. "There is no more glorious feeling than I felt the first time and every time since I put on my suit on Mardi Gras day. It is one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done.” - Dow Edwards
