RIO GRANDE PUEBLO PHOTOS - A DANCE IS A PRAYER

The beat of the drum, the rhythm of the chant - a prayer for rain reverbrates through out the pueblo plaza in Northern New Mexoco. The continuity of these centuries ols ceremonials,survive even as our thecnological way of life become more complex and fragmented. In the late 70’s and early 80’s I was allowed to photograph dances in Tesuque, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso and San Juan Pueblos. Their dance is a prayer, for us all, for there to be order in the universe. John Running
