Still Here: Not Living in Tipis

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown December 19th, 2013 Last Updated on: December 19th, 2013

For the past eight years, Sue Reynolds has photographed scores of ceremonies at reservations throughout the western and Plains states. About 40 of those images are now collected in her new book, “Still Here: Not Living in Tipis,” and on exhibit at the PhotoCentral gallery in Hayward, CA through Jan. 12.

Reynolds' purpose is to share visual narratives of contemporary Native Americans whose presence, she believes, remains largely unknown to mainstream America.

“I give a lot of slide shows and talks to community groups,” she said. “Before I do that, I ask my Native American friends, ‘What is the single most important thing you want non-native people to know?'”

The No. 1 response, she said, inspired the title of her book: “Tell them we're still here.”
