This past week, the Urban Indians crew finished up primary interviews in Denver and Durango. Soon, we will be off to a double roadtrip that takes us to Pine Ridge, South Dakota and Alburquerque & San Juan Pueblo, New Mexico.

We have concentrated on those that live in the city but soon, we will focus our interviews and broll on returnees to discuss relocation, identity and culture.

I've attached some more photos of our interview set-up, location shooting and some of the people that we been fortunate enough to visit with. This is quite an extraordinary project!
