Faces Of The First Nations

There's an underpass in the heart of the city, close to the Byward Market and the Government Conference Centre, allowing pedestrians to pass beneath a busy street section. There are often large photo banners placed here, and at the moment, they consist of these three First Nations images that I wanted to show you. The man in the third shot stands on Victoria Island, an island in the midst of the Ottawa River which has a First Nations site. I have not  photographed from the island in quite a long time, before I even started this blog. I'll have to remedy that.

  13. I'd spend a while there... Love the jingle dress shot, jingle dress dancing is so soothing and I spy a fancy shawl dancer in the background.

    Yes, please do remedy that. I for one would very much enjoy it.
