Tailyr Irvine

Tailyr Irvine

Tailyr Irvine is a Salish and Kootenai photojournalist based in Montana and Florida. She was born and raised on the Flathead Reservation in Montana, where she noticed a lack of meaningful media coverage in her community.

The prevalent Native American stereotypes in mainstream media led Tailyr to pursue a career in journalism. Tailyr is working on multiple projects in Indian Country, and she hopes to spend the rest of her career telling stories of Indigenous communities, featuring the complex and diverse Native experience.

Tailyr graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in journalism. When she is not actively working on projects in Indian Country, Tailyr enjoys sports photography, and pursues other editorial projects unrelated to her race.
