Please celebrate with us the official book signing and launch of Volume 1 of "Northern Plains Native Americans: A Modern Wet Plate Perspective". Ernie LaPointe, the Great Grandson of Sitting Bull, will be giving a short talk with flute playing by Dakota Goodhouse and an introduction by Shane Balkowitsch. There will be Native American singers and dancers in the Northern Lights Atrium following the talks. Shane will be on hand to sign copies of the first book for the series. This book celebrates the milestone of 250 plates. All of the original black glass ambrotypes are curated by the State Historical Society of North Dakota. Fifty of Shane's favorite images are featured in this first volume of 4 planned books.
