Dance of Recovery: Resilience and Healing Through Art

In 2020 Eugene D. Tapahe (BFA ’92), a Diné (Navajo) web designer turned fine art photographer, was feeling distressed by the pandemic and an aunt’s death from the virus. Then one night he dreamt he was in Yellowstone National Park, sitting in tall grass and peacefully watching bison, when jingle-dress dancers came to the grass and danced, bringing him healing and hope. This dream inspired Tapahe to create Art Heals: The Jingle Dress Project, which encourages peace and resilience. See more at magazine.byu.edu and tapahephotography.com.
