Native American Exhibition

Gaillard wrote the text for a traveling photography exhibition depicting the lives of Native Americans east of the Mississippi River as the 20th century drew to a close. For the past ten years these photographs, taken by award-winning photographer Carolyn DeMeritt, have traveled to venues throughout the South. Now an 80-page catalogue published in association with the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University offers a permanent record of this historic exhibition. This catalogue, entitled “We’re Still Here:” Native Americans of the South and East, can be ordered through Blurb.com. In addition, Gaillard’s 1998 book, As Long As the Waters Flow, which gave rise to the photography exhibition, is still available through John F. Blair, Publisher, Winston-Salem, NC.

“Frye Gaillard in words and Carolyn DeMeritt with images have filled a broad gap in our knowledge…”

-- Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

“… A moving story of survival … a hopeful, exhilarating tale…”

-- Studs Terkel, author of Hard Times
