Re-Imagining & Humanizing Natives - Thirsty (for Knowledge) Thursday

Another long video, but worth the 18 minutes of your day.

Matika Wilbur is in the midst of Project 562, an effort to photograph members of all federally recognized tribes in the US (though now there are a few more).

Her goal in this project is to show the human side of Native Americans, tell their stories, and highlight the issues they face. She hopes to spread a message of hope and pride to the next generation of Native Americans through a re-imagined on Natives in the media.
