Jennifer has chosen ‘elder’ as the subject for this week’s One Word Photo Challenge. Merriam-Webster’s definition of the noun elder is ‘One having authority by virtue of age and experience’ and, according to Wikipedia, American Indian elders are revered as repositories of cultural and philosophical knowledge. With extraordinary grace, energy and pride, these members of the American Indian Community have set a fine example by keeping their culture alive and meaningful for a new generation.
These images were taken at the American Indian Center’s 63rd Annual Chicago Powwow last year. For more on the One Word Photo Challenge go to https://jennifernicholewells.com/2017/01/31/one-word-photo-challenge-elder/
