Representatives from New York State Museum recently traveled to Akwesasne to purchase the photograph "Powwow Dancer 1" from Marjorie Skidders. Skidders met with Gwendolyn Saul, NYSM, at the Akwesasne Culture Museum to officially present the photo.

Skidders said, "I'm so honored to have one of my photos in their permanent collection."

Saul first saw the photo at the Ganondagan Museum 2019 Hodinöhsö:ni' Art Show in July, where the photo won third place in the 2D category. From there Saul shared the photo with her colleagues and decided to purchase it for the museum.
