“They say dance like nobody is watching. I think that implies that we are afraid or ashamed to dance in front of people. I say dance like everybody is watching, dance like your children are watching, your ancestors, your family. Dance for those who are hurting, those who can’t dance, those who lost loved ones, and for those that suffer injustices throughout the world. Let every step be a prayer for humanity! most of all dance for the creator, who breathed into your soul so you may celebrate this gift of life” - Christian Takes Gun Parrish A.k.a. Supaman
It was this very quote which moved me to set off on assignment to Crow Nation, Montana to meet and photograph Supaman for issue 0 of THE FALL mag.
On this occasion, Supaman danced a prayer in support of The Water Protectors, a grassroots movement that began in early 2016 in reaction to the approved construction of Energy Transfer Partners’ Dakota Access Pipeline in the northern United States.
