Navajo Santa

As a last minute assignment I learned that former Navajo Nation chairman Peter MacDonald would be speaking at a senior citizen's Christmas party. I made some images of him and then learned that Santa Claus was back stage, waiting to come out for an appearance.

I had no idea that the bearded jolly man was so lonely at times. Even Santa needs some time to himself to put on his game face and psych himself up to be jolly.

A short while later he was out amongst the crowd, sharing silly hats and making the crowd laugh. Since he was speaking entirely in Navajo I have no idea what he was going on about, but it certainly had the crowd in a merry uproar.
