Photographer's Note

Pow Wows are held all over the United States thoughout the year. In this case, George Mason University hosted this Veterans Celebration. I've been to a number of pow wow events across the country, but this one was interesting in many ways. The one that stood out most for me was that because the school host students from around the world, many nationalities were present.

The man in this picture is Phil Little Thunder, who was the head dancer at this event. He a Lakota Sioux from the Rose Bud Reservation of South Dakota. Between the dances and ceremonies, I was fortunate and honored to be able to speak with him and to learn more about him and his people.
