DAY 167 Alcida Farve Page photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP). 

I started coming here with my brother when I was about 12 for the dances. There were dance contests and my brother was my partner. We would win the dance contests all the time. We would dance barefooted. Everybody was here, and we were outdancing everybody. We did a dance called the shingaling; it was a fast song. I’m the fourth oldest of 14 kids; my mom is still alive, she is 93. Her name is Laura Farve
