Hand Drawn Animation - Red Mountain Eagle Pow Wow - 2018

In October of 2018 while visiting my family I attended the Red Mountain Eagle Pow Wow. The host and producers of the event were gracious and kind enough to extend assistance for my pursuit to capture reference material for my work. While documenting, speaking and experiencing the beauty of all - I was inspired to use my drawings to capture the movement and gesture of Dancing. It’s taken me months to put together these two short animations - hand-drawn slide by slide.

I’m curious to keep explore how with many different mediums I can tell cultural stories. A curiosity that I will continue to explore, learn and grow from.
