    This exhibition of images by photographer Sharon Hoogstraten (Citizen Potawatomi) records vivid portraits and accompanying personal statements of contemporary Potawatomis wearing traditional regalia from all nine Potawatomi nations. Her work highlights how this native community continues to breathe new life into traditional culture and handicrafts in today's world, celebrating their continued existence through centuries of loss and lighting the way forward for the next seven generations.
