ON THE COVER: Photographer Mary Annette Pember (Red Cliff Tribe of Wisconsin Ojibwe) took the handgame picture at the 2007 AIHEC conference in Rapid City, SD, on March 24-28, 2007. Handgames are highly popular traditional competitions involving teams of players facing each other, passing an object from hand to hand while singing. Team members take turns guessing whose hand is hiding the object. A stick is awarded for each correct guess. The winning team succeeds by distracting the other team and by collecting the most sticks.
Pember is an independent writer and photographer. She has worked with several publications and has won major photography awards. Read more about her on pages 7 and 27 of this issue. Visit her website at www.mapember.com
