Nina Cleveland, 1999

Tom Jones (b.1964; resides Madison, WI) is a Ho Chunk Native American. All of his projects represent some aspect of the Ho Chunk tribe, but the series not to be missed is The Ho Chunk People.

Jones: “Historically it has been outsiders who have taken these photographs of Native Americans. We have generally been represented with beads and feathers; this example can be seen through the extraordinary photographic portrayals of Edward Curtis. While this is an aspect of our life, the emphasis of my current body of work is focused on the members of my tribe and the environments in which they live, giving a name and face to the individuals and their way of life in our own time. [...] I am ever mindful of my responsibility to the tribe and to carry on a sense of pride about who and what we are as a people.”
