Cheyenne Eete Kippenberger
"Fire", Seminole Tribe of Florida, Miss Indian World 2019-2021, captured in the historic wet plate collodion process of pure silver on glass, for my series "Northern Plains Native Americans: A Modern Wet Plate Perspective". She flew in from Florida to participate in my series. I made a promise to Cheyenne to get some of the plates to museums in Florida and two of her state's historical societies now possess the original plates, a huge honor.
