New Mexico & Arizona Photographic Ethnography among the Navajo

Advisors: Unknown

The primary goal of the proposed research is to complete a photographic ethnography of a Navajo community through documentation of the people and cultural inventories of the interiors and exteriors of their homes. Because of the brevity of the observation (seven weeks), this research will center on a small group of people's world views, views of themselves, and perspectives of their heritage. These views will be evidenced by the material culture within their homes and through the interviews conducted with the photography.  The research also will include study of the varied possibilities and limits of photography as a research method.
