Picture, if you can, a man standing with the skin of his chest pierced with wooden pegs tied to leather thongs which are then attached to a pole.  The man leans away from the pole putting weight on the skin.  The man is a Native American Sun Dancer, and for at least 15 years, that man was Frank Alby.  Now 81, Frank doesn’t dance anymore, but he still participates in this sacred ceremony while other men dance.  Frank’s participation in the Sun Dance was the culmination of a journey to understand and learn about his heritage as a Native American.
