Dine'tah-Hajiinei | The Place of Emergence | Funded by: Arizona Commission on the Arts

 

Dine'tah-Hajiinei; The Place of Emergence. This area in northwest New Mexico where the Dine', Apache and Tewa peoples co-habitated with the Anasazi, contains a multitude of ceremonial and healing knowledge. I was invited by Dine' friends and elders to document this area with them, and eventually brought in 12 additional artists from 1986-1991. They assisted in documenting this area consisting of a radius of approximately 40 miles.The project was funded for five years by Arizona Commission on the Arts and Chinle School District Chapters 1 and IV programs.
