Photographer Matika Wilbur’s work on Native Americans at Burien Library Dec. 1
Matika Wilbur Presents:
Changing The Way We See Native America: Dismantling Native American Stereotypes
For far too long, Native America has been misrepresented as a “vanishing race,” silenced in mass media, with our indigenous intelligence erased from collective memory. Vital change begins with identifying and promoting positive indigenous role models from the contemporary, living era.
Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip) is one of the Pacific Northwest’s leading photographers.
Since 2012, Project 562 has collected portraits and oral narratives from more than 300 of the over 562 federally-recognized Tribal Nations in the U.S.
WHERE: Burien Library, 400 SW 152nd Street.
WHEN: Thursday, Dec. 1, starting at 7 p.m.
