Ancient Traditions, Modern Lives
For Marcia Keegan, recording the traditional ways of the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico has been a lifelong commitment. Keegan is the only photographer to date who has been allowed to take pictures in all 19 New Mexico Pueblos. Pueblo People takes us inside each of these communities and introduces us, in a unique fashion, to the personal dimensions of Indian culture. Including 351 color photographs taken recently and over the past 30 years, as well as personal stories and quotes offered by her Pueblo friends, Keegan's book presents a remarkable portrait of the continuity of families, traditions, and culture. Representing a continuing diary of Keegan's personal relationship with the Pueblos of New Mexico, the book stands as a tribute to the people, their way of life, and the villages in which they have lived for centuries.
