Subject: RE: BS: native american: Hopi Wedding (photos)
One has to click one's way deeper into the provided link,
it turns out, to see all of the photographs.

Inside the link with the story/report,
there is a further link to
"25 photos."

The story/report has perhaps nineteen photos total.

Inside the further photo-link,
and the photos omitted from the printed verbal article,
there is a photo outdoors in daylight,
in which the photographer stands above ground at a respectful distance,
and photographs men disappearing down a ladder
into an underground kiva.

That is the closest the photographer, or the reporter,
take us to the ceremonial center of communal Hopi functions.
We do not peer down into the opening at the ladder,
nor are we taken into the underground space.

These are briefly spoken of, and then the story moves on.
