One of the attractive qualities of
the photojournalism story in the previous post,

is its respectfulness.
Unless I'm mistaken,
the journalist who submitted the story is of Hopi descent.

Although in some of the striking photos,
miniature figures of kachinas may be seen in family homes,
the story does not expose ceremonial secrets or beliefs
that might seem exotic or sensational.

The emphasis throughout the report
is on the communal, the familial,
and the handcrafted homemades aspects of the occasion.

The two households joined in marriage
appear to be of extremely modest means,
and the materials and items
with which they celebrate
also appear modest.

I found the article really moving.
