Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a holiday that celebrates and honors Native American people and honors their histories and cultures. This day has been a long-time coming. There are 574 federally recognized tribes living within the US today, according to Wikipedia. Many live on Native American reservations or are mixed into today’s American culture. Whether you are 100% Native American or just a portion, October 11 is the perfect day to celebrate your culture.
On October 8, 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden, the first U.S. President to formally recognize the holiday, signed a presidential proclamation declaring October 11 to be a national holiday.
Some of the Native American tribes are Sioux, Cherokee, Apache, Comanche, Navajo, Miami, and others.
As we all know, capturing a portrait of those we want to celebrate, cherish, and honor is one of the most important things we can do. As a portrait photographer, I would love the opportunity to capture more of the Native American Indigenous culture. If you know someone who would love the opportunity to be photographed by Florida’s Leading Portrait Studio, please have them contact me. A Cultural Heritage Portrait is the best way to capture you and celebrate your ancestors all at the same time in a Magazine-Style Cover of Vogue-like way. Who would not want to have their personal Vogue Cover portrait of those you cherish the most?
Let’s together celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day 🙂
About Allie Serrano
My name is Allie Serrano and I am the owner of Allie Serrano Portraits, LLC. I was born in the heart of Europe in the Czech Republic. It is a land filled with rich country, history, and romanticism, a place where things are handcrafted, one-of-a-kind art, heirloom antiques are created and celebrated. This world continues to influence me to this day. As a little girl, I loved playing dress-up with my sister. I grew up having read hair and I was bullied for that. So, it is not surprising that today as a portrait photographer I have a burning desire to lift the confidence in everyone I meet, to change the world through beautiful portraits, to impact the world around me, and to tell the stories of the most incredible people I meet along the way. I can’t wait to meet you and tell your story with a portrait
