Globe-trotter, mountaineer and climbing companion of Patrick Edlinger, marathon runner, friend of many surf legends, Maurice Rebeix is a photographer particularly acknowledged for his cultural approach to Hawaiian surfing. But, for the last 25 years, he has also extensively visited Lakota Sioux reservations of North America. In 1999, although being a non-Indian, he is given permission to participate in the Sun Dance on the Rosebud reservation of South Dakota. Since then, each summer, he faithfully takes part in this four-day annual ritual which celebrates life and requires both a personal commitment and a physical sacrifice. Influenced by this adopted culture and its teachings, today Maurice shares his experience with others through seminars and conferences where he shares the philosophy and moral values of a traditional culture and spirituality in which every living being is part of one big family : the Family of Life !
