"The First in the Native American Series" The awesome Regalia caught my eye at a Pow Wow. I began talking to her ands allowed me to photograph her. I photographed her in a Pavillon filed to the brim with visitors and other Native Americans. I removed her from her surroundings that day and put her in a more regal background for this Artwork. She became on of my first friends in Tennessee. All the beautiful beadwork and sewing was done by hand. I learned from her that most of the regalia seen at powwows was handmade. Everyone tries to stay true to their tribes.
