About Chris Roberts

Chris Roberts has been dancing on the powwow circuit since 1967. In addition to dancing, he has photographed thousands of dancers at hundreds of powwows throughout the United States and Canada over the course of four decades. He is dedicated to depicting the richness of American Indian cultures and the warm spirit of North America’s native peoples.

Chris’ photographs have appeared in many books and magazine articles. He is the author of Powwow Country: People of the Circle.  The book is in print and available from Meadowlark Media. Besides powwow related books, Meadowlark Media offers DVD movies about American Indians throughout the United States and Canada.

We regret to report that Chris passed away in June of 2021 after a hard-fought battle with esophageal cancer. A fine sailor and a decades-long supporter of the powwow, we sound the funeral drum in his memory.
