Native Americans have served in all of America's wars, even though they were not granted citizenship until 1924. Clevenger's photographs include those of Native American military personnel taken in Iraq, as well as images of traditional coming home ceremonies such as the War Mothers' Dance, Welcoming Home/Cleansing Ceremony, and other rituals.
