The Institute of American Indian Arts is the only four-year degree fine arts institution in the nation devoted to contemporary Native American and Alaska Native arts. And the stunning buildings on campus reflect that contemporary dynamic.
And this amazing campus was the perfect stage for a Pow Wow - a gathering (summer of 2014) to celebrate dancing, singing, drumming and renewing old friendships. A vibrant way to preserve the rich heritage and culture of Native American Indians. I photographed in color, but processed the photos in black & white; it seemed to capture the true spirit of the event.
