I arrived at Luna's house to the chaos akin to preparing for a wedding. Her mother, hair done up in curlers, was busy putting the final touches on Luna's hair and makeup, her friends and family polishing their suits and dresses and generally milling about. Luna was mostly quiet while everyone zipped around her, putting on her jewelry and hair accessories, piling on layer after layer of tulle and underskirts until she could barely fit out the door.
After Luna was stuffed into the limo that took her and her friends to the venue, the party began. Seven hours of eating and dancing put my stamina to shame. Check out a few of my favorite shots from this intensely fun quinceanera below.
Three thousand Native Americans and supporters have been camping out for weeks in Cannonball, ND, to protest the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would transverse the Missouri River, the only source of water for the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Despite police barricades and lack of coverage by the major American news outlets, several foreign correspondents have made it into the camps to see what life is like for the protesters.
