Product Description

In All My Relations (Mitakuye Oyasin), photographer Aaron Huey portrays both the broken social landscape and the ceremonial warrior culture of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. This body of work goes far beyond the obvious, and over documented, poverty and into the world of the tribe’s visions and dreams. It is a witness to both the dark and the light, and is intentionally presented as more of a prayer or poem than documentary. The book begins and ends with a traditional Lakota prayer, suggesting that the intervening images may be analogous to a transformative ceremonial experience.

  • An original Shepard Fairey/Aaron Huey silkscreen printed on Canvas Box (signed and numbered by both artists).
  • A collection of Lakota Heyoka Stanley Good Voice Elk’s vision drawings, accompanied by his letter-pressed oral histories.

A BOOK BY AARON HUEY

“This is not a thought-experiment. Aaron Huey has put in the requisite time, and spent years among the Oglala Lakota in South Dakota.  Bottom Line: A brilliant book that honors a culture, and exposes our national disgrace ”-Jonathan Blaustein (aphotoeditor.com)

“Huey is a warrior with a camera who has something to say, says it well, and doesn’t give a shit if you don’t like it. He cares deeply.” -Tom (from the interwebs)
