Photographer's Note

The Native American people live in two worlds and are divided not only culturally, but also geographically. In this case you can easily see that this young man's outfit speaks clearly to this. When the US and Canada drew their borders many years ago, it was without regard to the previously established boundries of Indian Country, thus establishing a Geopolitical border through these peoples lands.

In spite of these impediments leveled on these people, they are among the most patriotic people I have met and proud of not only their nation, but also of the nations who have overwhelmed and segregated thier own.
