Card Set Images Inspire
The Tribal Heart greeting card set gives you a glimpse into Native American Life and Culture through the lens of Gail Russell Photography. Each boxed set comes with six, blank gift cards, featuring American Indian images of culture and tradition.
The American Indian images you find in my Tribal Heart gift cards are very special to me. They highlight a years-long journey of learning about and appreciating Native American life and culture.
My involvement in the Native American community started in the early 1970s. Through the “Friends of the Hopi” organization, Traditional Elders of the Hopi tribe invited me to their reservation to photograph the devastation Peabody Coal had on their land. This seminal experience led me to become involved in Native American causes and issues.
As I began photographing members of the Native American community, I developed an intense appreciation of their traditions and everyday activities. The richness of their history, the vibrance of their colorful ceremonies, their relationship with Mother Nature – all of it had a profound effect on me. May the images in this Gail Russell Photography greeting card set stir in you the same spiritual experience they did in me.
