California-born, New York-based photographer Jonathan Fasulo has shot for a range of clients including Adidas, H&M and Elite NYC. In the summer of 2014 he travelled to Montana to catch up with family and visited the small town of Browning in Glacier County, near the Blackfeet Indian reservation. Each July the North American Indian Tribes Days Festival is held in the town which Jonathan describes as “a mixture of county fair, family reunion, dance and rodeo competition.”

The images Jonathan took have been compiled into a photobook called Blackfeet that shows how traditions are being passed between generations at the event through food dance and celebration. The book offers a glimpse of how Native Americans are striving to retain their heritage in the modern world.
