On October 16, the body of Blackfeet actress Misty Upham was found near the White River on the Muckleshoot Reservation in Washington state. The grim discovery, by a search party composed of friends and relatives, brought to an end two traumatic weeks of uncertainty and fear. 

In the week that followed, mourners gathered on the Muckleshoot Reservation for a vigil, wake, and memorial service for Upham. Photographer Mel Ponder was there to capture the flavor of the event: Expressions of grief and sadness, but a spirit of celebration with moments of joy. For many more of her photos, visit the Misty Upham Community Vigil and Misty Upham Memorial Service galleries on the official Mel Ponder Photography Facebook page.
