Powwow Summary

Powwow: Images Along the Red Road by Ben Marra

Seeking to capture the romance and traditions of American Indian life and lore, photographer Ben Marra presents a series of portraits of men, women and children who embody the proud spirit and intensity of the powwow - multi-tribal celebrations of native song and dance held throughout the USA. Most of the photographs are accompanied by statements from the subjects themselves, telling of their childhood introductions to powwow life, their pride in their elaborate, lavishly-detailed attire, and the sense of inter-tribal community that comes from participating in powwows. Many also voice their commitment to walking along "the Red Road" (that is, free of alcohol and other substances) - a code intended to guide all powwow participants.
