Please visit The Southern Ute Drum to view powwwow coverage…
I had the opportunity to cover the Gathering of Nations this year, along with the music venues held each year at stage “49”…
– Awesome experience!
One of my favorite performances came from Levi Platero, a Navajo guitarist of acclaimed talent. The show was impressive, and the stage lighting provided all that was necessary to capture this artistic moment…Enjoy the image!
Cheers, Jeremy

Full Regalia…

Regalia plays a large part in the arena as dancers work their way through the Powwow circuit. Men and women alike, young and old compete for points and money in Powwows across North America. The color, movement and energy in the Powwow arena is awesome, but the individuality of each person is often times reflected by their regalia.

I was fortunate enough to witness the Gathering Of Nations Powwow in Albuquerque, New Mexico while on assignment for the Southern Ute Drum Newspaper. Claiming the title of “Americas Largest Powwow” the Gathering of Nations is a sight to behold, bringing North America’s Tribes together in full regalia!
