Three Indians

Camp Pirtle Scout Reservation, near Carthage, Texas, 2001 photo by Carey Russell

“Witnessing rites of passage for young men in America always fascinates me. These boys, who are about to participate in an honorary scouting ceremony, may seem farcical at first, but the earnestness they bring to their interest in American Indian culture is very sincere. All three of them researched and built their own costumes and headdresses.”
