Join us for a very special evening on Thursday, May 4 from 5:30-7:30pm with Matika Wilbur, a visual storyteller from the Swinomish and Tulalip peoples of coastal Washington, who has been traveling and photographing native people for the past decade in pursuit of one goal: To Change the Way We See Native America. Come celebrate the release of Matika Wilbur’s book, PROJECT 562, a moving love letter to Indigenous Americans, containing hundreds of stunning portraits and compelling personal narratives of contemporary Native people—all photographed in clothing, poses, and locations of their choosing. Their narratives touch on personal and cultural identity as well as issues of media representation, sovereignty, faith, family, the protection of sacred sites, subsistence living, traditional knowledge-keeping, land stewardship, language preservation, advocacy, education, the arts, and more. The event, sponsored by the KWD Collaborative in Conflict-Transformation and ICAPP, is free and open to the public and will be held at the Irvine Auditorium at 499 Pierce St. at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey on Thursday, May 4 from 5:30-7:30pm.
