Join us for a talk by critically acclaimed photographer Matika Wilbur, followed by a book signing of Wilbur’s book Project 562: Changing the Way We See Native America. A reception for the artist with light refreshments will follow the talk. Copies of Project 562: Changing the Way We See Native America will be available for purchase at the event.
Matika Wilbur is a critically acclaimed social documentarian and photographer from the Swinomish and Tulalip peoples of coastal Washington. Project 562, a crowd-funded initiative to visit, engage, and photograph people from over 562 sovereign Tribal Nations in North America, is her fourth major creative venture elevating Native American identity and culture. She co-hosts the All My Relations podcast with Dr. Adrienne Keene as a platform that invites guests to delve into subjects facing Native peoples today and explore the connections between land, non-human relatives, and one another. She has offered over 300 keynotes at such places as Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, Google, TED Talks, and the National Education Association. She is a National Geographic Explorer.
This event is co-presented by Stamps Gallery, The Research for Indigenous Social Action and Equity Center (RISE), and the UM Arts Initiative.
