Its always great to get the chance to photograph artists that you’re a fan of, and that chance came the other night when Indigenous finally came to town. Ive been a long time fan and have seen them first perform at the Tralf in down-town Buffalo, NY when Mato’s brother and sister were still in the band. Unfortunately I missed him when he performed for the Nammies 2 years ago which featured the Plateros, Levi and Douglas. Heres an abbreviated gallery from their performance at B. B. Kings including Mato Nanji and Bronson Begay.
Its been quite a few years since Ive had the opportunity to attend the Salamanca Pow Wow, much less have the opportunity to photograph it.

In the fall of 2016, I was given the honor of being the official photographer for the Native American Music Awards, celebrating their 16th annual ceremony of Native American music.

White Band, Joseph FireCrow, Ed Koban, Shelley MorningSong and Fabian Fontanelle, Annie Humphrey, Sage Bond and Keith Secola.
