An Indian Chief in full warpaint and the 'leader of the powwow' looks back straight towards the photographer while he is singing in that deep voice of his. In this picture you can see what makes him a leader, he has the biggest face paint and feathers, it seems to be saying 'I am the boss'. We do not know a lot about these people's language or way of dressing before they were converted to Christianity. The first picture is of just that; a native American Indian man wearing traditional clothing and face paint.


The leaders gaze is a powwow of Native American traditions and renewal. It’s about getting together with family and friends to celebrate music, dance and song and to share one another’s stories.
