Sunrise Gathering 1992

Several hundred participants gather around a ceremonial tepee for a sunrise ceremony, Oct. 10, 1992, in New York's Central Park. The ceremony, which marked the 500th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of the Americas, was organized by a not-for-profit foundation formed to assist in the return of ceremonial and ritual objects to the people of the Indian Nations who created, utilized, and revered them.
