Today is International Women's Day. It is a day to reflect on the importance of our Sacred women in this world. It is also a day to give honor to the sacred creators of life.
As an editor at Indian Country Today, I have traveled all over Turtle Island in an effort to bring you the news. I have had the extreme honor to photograph a plethora of elders, young people, music artists and most importantly, our sacred Native women.
Over the past few days, I have scoured my archives of images and found some of my favorites to share. The most difficult part of this task was selecting photos out of the tens of thousands I have taken throughout the years.
Here is my photography tribute to International Women's Day. And thanks to you sacred Native women, for giving us the gift of life.

I hope you enjoyed my International Women's Day photo tribute.
