With a feather headdress, spear and face paint, Malachi Tsoodle-Nelson (Navajo and Kiowa) drew attention from many camera-toting tourists Sunday at the 92nd annual Santa Fe Indian Market. One even asked Tsoodle-Neslon, “Can I get a warrior’s stance?” And the 23-year-old obliged by lifting his prop and contorting his face into a snarl.

Tsoodle-Nelson and his mother teamed up to create his multipiece outfit for the annual Native American Clothing Contest, a Santa Fe Plaza event that showcased the work of more than 50 Native artists.

    Thank you for taking the time to highlight one of the many outstanding events at Indian Market. For many years I have had the priviledge of serving as a volunteer during the Clothing Contest and can't find the words to express the excitement and positive energy it generates, not only amongst the colorful participants but also in the audience. It truly is a peoples event and God bless the individuals, and there are many, that make it happen ! joe
