Cheyenne Name: Short Nose Tribal Affiliations: Otoe Missouria , Southern Cheyenne & Muskogee Creek I began taking portraits of myself when i couldnt find any Native Communities in the NYC area. Alot of the Indigenous people left the city and returned home or went to live in other areas during the pandemic. I began calling my gas mask covid NDN ShortNose which is my Cheyenne traditional name. Hes become a Trickster bringing attention to Indigenous and social issues within our communities. You Never Know Where He Might Show Up.. .
