Photographer's Note

This dignified gentleman was kind enough to pose for me at the Annual Denver March Pow Wow, a large gathering of Native Americans from all Nations. I was fascinated by his facial makeup. I liked the duality of black and white on opposite sides of his face. I wonder if this was representative of a "Ying and Yang" principle. I spoke with him briefly and he siad that he was from one of the plains tribes and he went back to join the festivities. For more information on this event see my previous posting "Pow Wow Dancer#3".

This Native American is doing the classic warrior's stare, which I happen to respect. I prefer the directness of the warrior over polite "political correctness". He was actually a very nice and gracious person.
