. Potawatomi photographer captures the joys of dance in new book « JO LEE MAGAZINE

INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY – For the last 12 years, photographer Sharon Hoogstraten of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation has been capturing the joy and resilience of citizens of all nine Potawatomi nations reflected through their dance and regalia. Inspired by her discovery of a photograph of a long-ago ancestor at the Wilmette Historical Society, she wanted to preserve photographs of current Potawatomi citizens for future generations, in vibrant color with smiling faces and laughter. “Photography is a way to tell a story,” Hoogstraten told ICT recently. “It opened up a whole new world for me. It’s storytelling, and in Native life.”
