Today only about 2,000 ama divers remain in Japan.
About 800 of them reside in the Ise-Shima area of Japan's Mie prefecture, a region especially known for its rich waters. Many of these women are in their 60s and have been diving their entire adult lives.
Captain Masumi and his team dive once a day, usually six days a week. They hunt for seafood in open ocean waters: sea cucumbers, seaweeds, turban shells and the precious abalone. The whistling noise these women emit when coming up for air is called “isobue” or “ocean whistle”.

The Annual Buffalo RoundUp, when herdsmen on horseback spur more than 1,300 American buffalo through the grasslands. The Black Hills Powow or wacipi, a social event where friends and families meet, camp, visit and reconnect as tribal nations. The Beauty and The Beast Rodeo at Three-Mile Creek in Pine Ridge runs every Wednesday night in summer and is sold out.
