High Hopes for a New Generation
Photograph by Maggie Steber

Sissy Wildcat hoists her nephew, three-month-old Skylar Wildcat, at a Thanksgiving family get-together in Park Hill, Oklahoma. The extended Wildcat family, whose roots are in the Creek and Cherokee tribes, maintain age-old traditions such as backyard stomp dances held on special occasions. The population of Native America is on the rise—from a low point of 240,000 in 1900 to some 4.1 million today—and so is the number of Indians reestablishing connections with their cultural roots.
