Silent Thunder • A Native Dance
Hau, mitakuyepi, daya yahipi. Robert Meyer- he mi yelo. Eciya wichasa mi yelo.
Hello my relatives, welcome. Robert Meyer, this is me. I am a common man.
Embracing a love and spiritual connection for the Native Americans, Meyer has taken on a monumental task in photographing a rebirth of a culture. Inspired by the work of Edward Sheriff Curtis, where Curtis at the turn of the 19th century, felt the Native Americans were a vanishing race already shorn of their tribal strength and stripped of their primitive dress, were passing into the darkness of an unknown future. Meyer feels that the future has come and a once ravished race is again becoming alive. To capture this rebirth is quickly becoming a passion of which Meyer is eager to embrace.
