I was fortunate enough to meet Norris Chee during a PowWow one year and get to know him a wee bit, he had asked me if I could photo some of his artwork to be highlighted in an upcoming magazine artical, to which I agreed of course, but that I wanted the chance ot take a formal portrait of him while I was there, and this is one of those portraits.
