More than 1,000 Native American dancers – representing 95 North American tribes – gathered recently for the 45th Annual Powwow, held at the Denver Coliseum.

The event featured stunning, colorful Native American garments, music, crafts, artwork, and food. It also featured innumerable, proud smiles.

Dance categories ranged from Tiny Tots – boys and girls, six-years-old and younger – to Golden Age men and women, sixty-years-old or older.

Whether capturing the grandeurs of Native American culture or the joy of new American immigrants, professional WBIS photographers span the globe in search of radiant, life-affirming smiles. You can browse an inspiring gallery of more than 700 WBIS photos here.
