Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)

A maiden stands beside corn plants as dragonflies gather above rain clouds. She holds a basket called a yungyapu with lighting and rain cloud designs. She is part of a ceremony in which woman dance and sing with their yungyapu as gifts are handed out to the crowd, an act of sharing one's village successful summer harvest. It is also a reminder that one's success is always due to the support of family and friends.
