A Gesture of Kinship: Photographs by Bruce Hucko

"A Gesture of Kinship" examines the photographic history of a group of Navajo people, documented by photographer Bruce Hucko. (The photo is from the exhibition.)

The exhibition features documentary photographs and insightful interviews with young Navajos coupled with additional photos and interviews with the same subjects 20 years later. Composites of these interactions offer a rarely-seen view of everyday life on the reservation, insights into what changes and what stays the same in the community, and a look at internal and external influences on a Navajo life.

Included with general admission to the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, the exhibit runs through 5 July.

The Eiteljorg is located in Indy's White River State Park at 500 West Washington Street, Indianapolis.
