life with the navajo through images, words + wheat paste.
Okay, luv... I need to know more about this! Doesn't look like any vespers I've witnessed in the past. Very curious.Merry Christmas to you, Chip. Peace :)
yeah, i hear you. apparently, the spanish allowed the puebloans to mix elements of their traditions with rites from the catholic church. the dancers in this photo just left mass and danced through the village before returning to church. one of the more memorable parts of the ceremony was the intermittent firing of a high powered rifle (which sounded more like a canon). i'm not sure what the purpose of that was. regardless, it was visually striking. i've more images i'll upload eventually. as always, thanks for looking and merry christmas!xo
Is this Picture from this past Christmas eve (2010)?
Oh. Thanks for responding. I love this picture. My daughter was the Malinche...but she didn't make the picture.
nice. if you get your address to me, i can get a copy of the photo to you.
