Paper Abstract

In March of 1990 I filmed the first in the Native American Holo-Portrait series which I showed video of at the last Lake Forest Symposium. Since then I have done several additional film shoots with almost 40 different holo-portraits currently in the can. With around 500 Native American nations within the northern hemisphere the prospect of filming one hologram per nation looks like a multi-decade project. All 35 mm cine has been shot to date in color on extremely fine grain T formula emulsion stocks. Some of the footage has been shot using the rotating subject configuration and others with the laterally translating camera configuration. In the future I may film all subjects in both formats if time allows. Other images have been shot at reservations and pow-wows. All location work is accomplished with lighting and generators on hand because of questionable power availability at some of the sites. I have received a favorable response for potential support from the Smithsonian's Native American Museum now under construction on the mall next to the Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. This will be a fine display space for these portraits. However, I am planning to produce editions in several formats in order to allow for global distribution of these images.
