Photographer Craig Varjabedian is working with indigenous people around New Mexico to celebrate their past and their culture with the “Native Light Photo Collaboration Project”. He took care of what's behind the frame — operating the camera — and the people themselves were responsible for everything within it — choosing clothing, regalia, and other objects that are important to them.

STUNNING!! Not the actual photos (although they are pretty good) but the majesty, character & beauty of REAL Americans, before the Mayflower brought foreigners. For a country lacking in history, it's shameful that these Native Americans were so badly treated & continue to be so today.
