Standing Bear, aka Bill Kimmey, named this picture "GREAT SPIRIT, I COME TO YOU WITHOUT SHAME."  The story behind the digital photo illustration goes back to a powwow I was photographing many years ago. I was using film and It was the last picture I had taken that day, a teepee at the edge if a lake. Months later I visited Standing Bear at his leather shop in the San Fernando Valley to have leatherwork repaired.  During the visit,  I shared the picture. I remember the moment of surprise when he said it was his teepee. I asked him what he would name it and he said, "Great Spirit, I come to you without shame." Later I visited him at his home and photographed him to create the digital photo illustration shared here. Standing Bear was born on March 19, 1926, in the coal-mining town of Time, Pennsylvania.  His mother was Delaware, his father Iroquois.  He appeared in his first wild-west show in 1934 and later became a motion picture consultant.  He rode with Gene Autry’s Spirit riders of the West from 1980 until a heart attack in 1995.  He lectured and demonstrated Native American customs and crafts before schools and groups.  He was one of the founders and first spiritual leader of the Hart of the West Powwow in the mid 1990’s.
