Pima Indian Boy Dancer Holding Puppy "Puppy Love" Original Photograph Reprint


"Puppy Love" is an original photograph that is an 8 1/2" x 11" unframed print that is ready for your framing. It is mounted on a black foam core board. I saw this little fancy dancer boy at the Pima Community College Spring powwow in Arizona. I obtained a photographer's pass from the elder's council and was placed with a Pima family. It was a great honor to be seated with them in their family space watching the mother braid the father's hair and finish dressing her two young dancers for competition. The little boy was cradling a tiny, tan puppy the whole time and was constantly being pestered by his little sister to hold the puppy. His very patient mother finally took the dog from both of them and said "You both have to go out and dance now. That is why we are here." The reprint has less of his arm showing than the thumbnail here.
