The native village of Huslia, half way point of the 2017 Iditarod, is a community rich in mushing history and home of the late sprint champion musher George Attla, Jr and other top mushers of the past 40 years. Although mushing originated with Native Alaskans, it's popularity in Native communities has dwindled over the past century. However Huslia is currently working to bring the tradition back to their village with community programs.#onassignment for @natgeo
Photo by @petekmuller / @prime_collective. The large boulders behind my friend, Joe, make up what's known as King Phillips Cave in the town of Norton,#Massachusetts. King Phillip's War was a campaign of fierce, cyclical violence that occurred between 1675 and 1676 between English settlers and the Wampanoag, Nipmuck and Narragansett Indians. It is widely regarded as the largest loss of life (per capita) in the history of the United States and a key event in the formation of colonial identity in the territories. I grew up in Massachusetts and learned virtually nothing about it in our public schools. It felt deeply disconcerting to cross the street from Joe's house, past a string of newly-constructed million-dollar homes, to this small protected site. As we explored the rock formations and thought about what they signified, a man ran a snow blower on the driveway of his palatial home. During my visiting professorship at Mount Holyoke College, I've been reading an incredible book about King Phillip's War by historian Jill Lepore. An important book for all. #MA#nativeamerican#wanpanoag#kingphilipswar#winter#newengland

Portrait of Maria who belongs to the #popoluca community, in Ocotal Grande, State of Veracruz, Mexico.
Popoluca is a #Nahuatl term (meaning "gibberish, unintelligible speech") given to various indigenous communities of southeastern Veracruz. It is a derogatory exonym the Aztecs applied to different communities from Mexico. In fact, the term popoluca is similar in connotation and meaning to the term barbarian used by Greeks and Romans. The popolucas are linguistic and cultural descendants of the Olmecas, mother civilization of Mesoamerica.
From his ongoing project about "Realismo Mágico" (Magical Realism). Realismo Mágico (Magical Realism) is a literary movement from the mid-twentieth century and is defined by its stylistic concerns an the interest in showing the unreal or strange as something common, of the everyday. It is an artistic and literary trend that consists on faithfully representing reality while creating certain emotional stress without any idealization. It also includes fantastic elements in the narration, with the aim to deepen in reality through the magic in it. Mexico is one of the countries where such movement takes on the everyday with magical elements that are normal for its inhabitants.
Farmer Michael Eaton paddles a canoe to his farm flooded by the Consumes River in California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. During recent heavy rains, the Consumes and Mokelumne Rivers broke levees, flooding low-lying farmland in the Delta. The flooding wasn’t intentional, but scientists and environmental groups say deliberately creating similar areas – floodplains to allow rivers to overflow more naturally and benignly – would help ease the strain on this water infrastructure, especially as climate change poses new challenges. #nytassignment#california#water#farming#agriculture#climatechange#environment

And as a result of Mexico's drug war, the number of women in prison for federal crimes quadrupled. The rise of women’s involvement in drug related crime was directly linked to poverty and lack of employment opportunities; systemic problems in Juarez that escalated after the 2008 financial collapse."

"In 1999, a Benedictine monastery was founded in the Ozark foothills of Hulbert, Okla. A community of devout Catholics has grown around the Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey since then, part of an effort to separate from secular society and live closer to the land. Father Abbot Philip Anderson, the head of the monastery, has called the growing village here a "hundred-year project," which he hopes will ultimately resemble the villages that grew up around monasteries in Europe during the Middle Ages in the centuries after St. Benedict." @maxwhittaker photographed a Benedictine monastery located in the Ozark foothills of Hulbert, Okla for the @wsj .

Photo by Christian Rodriguez @christian_foto / @prime_collective on assignment for @natgeo in Montevideo, Uruguay. Dancer from "Batea de tacuarí" during the parade. During the "Llamadas", meaning street parades, the comparsas (performers) and lubolos (people painted with black and white face paint) walk and dance. The names of the comparsas refer to African countries like Senegal, Uganda, Nigeria, among others.
Members of the drum section wear "alpargatas" or shows resembling sandals worn by slaves, and long black stockings meant to imitate the skin of black people. The stockings have white ribbons around the calves to symbolize lashes the slaves received.
Candombe is an Uruguayan music and dance that comes from African slaves. It is considered an important aspect of the culture of Uruguay and was recognized by UNESCO on the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. This Uruguayan music style is based on three different drums: chico, repique and piano drums. Carnival in Uruguay is recognized as the longest in the world lasting approximately 35 days. #candombe#llamadas#carnival#montevideo#uruguay

This week we will be sharing photos from the project XIEC, by Christian Rodriguez.
The Vietnam Circus Federation was founded by Ta Duy Hien (1889-1966) on January 16, 1956. It began as a private company to provide opportunities for artists to work in the circus, training them through circus school and bringing them together in one big family. After Vietnam gained independence from French colonial rule in 1954, Hien handed his circus over to the new Vietnamese government but remained as its director.
