Meeting Time

So I am slowly meeting people out here. The people are very wary, and it is very hard to get photographs of people. I have been meeting with an elder of the tribe in the mornings for several hours, he is telling me a lot about traditions, the old ways of life, and history of the tribe. I started photographing children, it is much easier for me to start there. The biggest sport here is basketball, it is actually the only sport I have heard about since I got here. I haven't seen any sports stickers, hats, or jerseys except basketball ones. I even see the air jordan logo on the back of a lot of pickups. So here is one of the courts that is right down the street from where I am staying.
