People of the Dancing Sky contains 100 black and white photographs of the contemporary Iroquois as they represent themselves in traditional, contemporary, and distinctively individual regalia. The beautiful photographs were all produced at the Six Nations Reserve in Brantford, Ontario with the full cooperation of the people there. Costume styles range from traditional (pre-trade, pre-cloth) to modern interpretations. Elders and others are shown in regalia that dates back to the last century, in pow wow dress, wearing skins, antler horns, wolf heads, ferns, and bark. It also contains a history of the Iroquois and a description of the people photographed, including tribe, clan, native name, and traditional position. The lyrics of Robbie Robertson, a member of Six Nations Reserve and the famous lead guitarist of The Band, adorn the text. This is a powerful testimony of the Iroquois way of life as it preserves these hitherto unpublished images of a great Native American society.
