Seeds of Culture: The Portraits and Voices of Native American Women
November 02 - January 05
Matika Wilbur, a visual storyteller from the Swinomish and Tulalip peoples of coastal Washington, has for the past five years been traveling and photographing Indian Country as part of her Project 562. Wilbur’s Seeds of Culture exhibit is a collection of portraits that provides remarkable insights into contemporary Native American women. This curated selection of photographs from among the thousands of portraits she has taken in recent years across the United States are accompanied by written narratives and audio of the interviews she conducts as part of her project. Elders, activists, educators, culture-bearers, artists, and students have shared with Wilbur their realities as Native women. They convey how ancestral and contemporary identities shape their lives and hopes in Indian Country. Wilbur’s pursuit is “To Change the Way We See Native America” and this exhibit will certainly alter your perceptions. Opening day is FREE!
