A captivating photographic & narrative journey celebrating Native American life & cultures, with an in-depth look at the issues they face, by acclaimed photographer & storyteller Matika Wilbur. "This book is essential. It's an expansive view of Indigenous people in the US." -Tommy Orange. In 2012, Wilbur sold everything & embarked on a Kickstarter-funded mission to document all 562 federally recognized Tribes. For a decade, she traveled across 50 states to interview & photograph hundreds of Indigenous people, creating a remarkable portfolio that counters mainstream stereotypes & honors the diversity & richness of Indian Country. Project 562 is a stunning, moving tribute to Native Americans with hundreds of portraits & narratives about identity, media, sovereignty, family, sacred sites, language, education, & more. Wilbur's essential work offers a remarkable contribution, inspiring & transforming how we see Native America.
