A protester holds an inverted umbrella during scuffles with the police in the Mong Kok district of Hong Kong, on November 25, 2014, the night before the Mong Kok protest site was cleared by the authorities. Pro-democracy demonstrators blocked major thoroughfares and roads of the city for just over two months, calling for universal suffrage in 2017 with the right to elect the city's own chief executive-- without Beijing's pre-approval of candidates-- a demand that remains rejected by Beijing. 
 Members of the Black Leggings Society, all combat veterans of different wars, wait to enter the arena to dance on the second day of the ceremony remembering the Kiowa tribe's veterans, on Sunday, October 12, 2014.   Each year, the 'Ton-Kon-Gah' - the Black Leggings Society of the Kiowa tribe - gather in a ceremony to remember those who have served in the armed forces in the various foreign wars. It is a tradition that is almost as old as the tribe itself, and is different from other veterans societies in the way their veterans are remembered, from their dress, to their dances. Over a weekend in the fall, new members are initiated whilst older members lead the way, and the community of the Kiowa tribe come out to remember their war veterans.
