Event description

Description

"The time is upon us to change the way we see Native America. The indigenous story is a more accurate story, it is a story that honours and respects the original people of this land and it’s something that we can all learn from and celebrate."


Matika Wilbur is an acclaimed portrait photographer and social documentarian from the Swinomish and Tulalip tribes of the Pacific Northwest. She is currently working on Project 562, a multi-year national photo and narrative undertaking to reveal contemporary Indian identity.
