  1. Beautiful work. Wished we had a recording of the music. At what pueblo was this picture? There’s a book I recommend, history and social analysis: When Jesus Came, The Corn Mothers Went Away. A scholarly work, not right wing or anything like that. Thanks for the photograph.

    • I photographed the dancers at the Acoma pueblo when they opened their new tourist center. Many other dancers from different pueblos also attended. I took the people out from the Church photo, my printed photo they were out but I had forgotten to take them out for this site, Thank you for your great observation. I would like to read that book if I can find it, who is the author? There is much culture and history of the Native Americans.
