Project 562 : changing the way we see Native America / Matika Wilbur.

Wilbur, Matika, (author,, photographer.).


"A photographic celebration of contemporary Native American life and an examination of important issues the community faces today by the creator of Project 562, Matika Wilbur"-- Provided by publisher.
"In 2012, Matika Wilbur sold everything in her Seattle apartment and set out on a Kickstarter-funded pursuit to visit, engage, and photograph people from what were then the 562 federally recognized Native American Tribal Nations. Over the next decade, she traveled six hundred thousand miles across fifty states--from Seminole country (now known as the Everglades) to Inuit territory (now known as the Bering Sea)--to meet, interview, and photograph hundreds of Indigenous people. The body of work Wilbur created serves to counteract the one-dimensional and archaic stereotypes of Native people in mainstream media and offers justice to the richness, diversity, and lived experiences of Indian Country." -- inside front cover.
