. . Macoah Mack's . . I witnessed my friend marry his best friend & it was one of THE most beautiful ceremonies I've ever witnessed. Their ceremony was lead with his sisters in shawls, his brothers with their drums, his aunt who married them in our traditional language & her uncle who lead sacred indigenous ceremony. The lump in my throat & pride in my heart was over whelming. I felt so many things awaken that have been fast asleep for far too long. . . Thank you Carlos for including us in your ceremony & all your harvest trips. Thank you for being like an uncle to my little man, you've become part of our family & we love you & your new wife! . . I'm no wedding photographer but when your gangster friends revive indigenous traditional ceremonies.... ❤️🙏🏼❤️❗️🙌🏼 📸 . . #macoah#firstnations#indigenouslove#maketheoldwaysnew#reviveoldways
