In this edition of Anishinaabe Way: Lives, Words, and Stories of Ojibwe People, Duluth photographer Ivy Vainio stops by WTIP on her way to the 2013 Annual Rendezvous Days Pow Wow at Grand Portage.  

Known best for her bold images of pow wow dancers, Ivy shared two of her favorite photos, discussed cultural protocols about pow-wow photography and shared information about a 2014 calendar project that features her work. The project is a benefit for the American Indian Community Housing Organization's (AICHO) artist's fund and the calendar features 12 of Ivy's pow-wow portraits.
