The Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial is one of the longest-running recognitions of Native American culture and art of the United States. First launched on September 28, 1922, it has been continuously taking place in Gallup, New Mexico for nearly a century. Featuring events embedded deep in Native American culture, it has inspired similar gatherings across the Southwest. Here are the scenes of the event at the late 1940s, taken by the renowned photographer Ivan Dmitri:
