Debby & Edgar Perry on Flickr.
Update: This is a reposting of a photo that I uploaded in March of last year. I got an e-mail yesterday from the producer of an NPR radio program “The State of the Re:Union.” They are going to do a piece on the White Mountain Apache and wanted to contact him. Unfortunately, I did not keep his business card. However, it is still fun when a photo leads to some kind of outside contact. I just wish I had kept their information.
We met Debby and Edgar at the Indian Market at the Heard museum this past weekend. Debby and Edgar are White Mountain Apache who live on the Fort Apache Reservation in eastern Arizona. We have a standing invitation to give them a call when we are in the area. It is really exciting to meet people like them who are so outgoing and eager to share their rich culture with people.
This photo was processed by converting to B&W and then editing to resemble a 19th century albumen photograph.
