BACK IN THE DAY when G. BALLARD held the pow-wow creative contracts to produce the pow-wow poster and magazine cover, Ballard delivered finished posters for release, and film and match print for the magazine cover (pictured above).


Alexis Tucker, 9, and Raymond "Swift Hawk" Sandoval Jr., 8, both Indian children are Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation tribal members, participated in Sycuan's 12th Annual Powwow, September 10, 2001.

Field note: Young Raymond, the head boy dancer, was dodging the camera all three days. In this photograph, Ray was stopped in the pow-wow arena during the Grand Entry and was stuck for the photo because everyone was watching. I think he was kind of mad at me for dogging him, but I persevered and got one of my best Sycuan pictures ever.

The photographer took this photograph with medium-format color negative film. Of course the background needed dropped out for this advertising quality event candid.

The photographer shot the background Sycuan Color Guard in a previous Sycuan Powwow.
