If you go to a demonstration performance of the Pueblo Buffalo Dance, you’ll see a bank of people with cell phones taking pictures, sharing, and posting. We don’t experience reality directly anymore, but through our cell phones, or through social media. At performances on the pueblos, pictures are not allowed.

Note: Representative image at left is often cropped for display purposes. Downloaded high-resolution images are not cropped.
