About this Event

Ya’at eeh! Or shall we say, "welcome" in Dine, the language of the Navajo.

Spanning tens of thousands of square miles across portions of the West, Native American communities — including Navajo Nation and 19 Pueblos — are considered Sovereign Nations, and exist in a world of their own. While they’re primarily only accessible to members of their tribes, photographer Julien McRoberts was granted rare access to capture the beauty of their land, culture, and people due to her personal relationships within the Native communities. This is her story, told through the lens.

Join New York Adventure Club as we embark on an inspirational photographic journey to the unique and fascinating Native cultures in New Mexico, from Navajo Nation to the many pueblos throughout the state.

Led by NYC-based — and American West born-and-bred — photographer Julien McRoberts, our visual feast surrounding our Native neighbors will include:

  • Pueblo ceremonial feast day dances featuring traditional multi-colored outfits
  • Spanish/Moorish influenced Matachine dances
  • Miss Navajo Nation — the most unusual “Beauty Pageant”
  • Scenes of everyday life in the tribe, including a traditional Navajo family feast to a churro sheep herder
  • Inside the studio of world renown artist, Roxanne Swentzell

Afterward, we'll have a Q&A with Julien — any and all questions about the Native American Tribes of the Southwest are welcomed and encouraged!

A portion of the proceeds will go to provide masks for the Navajo Nation community at the Chinle and Tuba City Chapter Houses.
