Present in Power: Photo Essays from Four Winds

Four Winds is a space to offer virtual, visual sovereignty to Native American people. We love sharing photo essays that show First Nations people expressing themselves in their culture, families, and everyday lives. These photos, taken by Erv Shleufer, depict the beauty and power of the Non-Vanishing Indian in direct dissent to the rhetoric of Old Hollywood, which, as some film critics have noted, wrote Native America’s obituary long ago. But we’re still here, in presence and in power.
