Going Native | Head On Photo Festival

Going Native

Photographer's Name: 
Terry Payne

This is my father, a 2/3 Cherokee Indian. In all his 70 years, he never had his photo taken where he has shown his Native American roots until visiting me from Arkensas in January 2016. I'm so glad I was able to capture this photo of him - he's not in very good health, but you can see in his eyes he is very determined to show strength without saying a word.

Festival Year: 
2016
