Project 562

Project 562

Created by Matika Wilbur, Project 562 is a multi-year national photography project dedicated to photographing over 562 federally-recognized tribes in what is currently called the United States. The result is an unprecedented repository of imagery and oral histories which accurately portrays contemporary Native Americans. Authentic representation is not only essential for Native communities, but for society at large. Honest imagery of the wisdom, joy, and diversity of contemporary Native lives inherently guides folks to overcome toxic historical stereotypes that degrade Native American existence. Project 562 is about celebrating the nuance and relationality of Indigeneity.
